    Fast Idle...

    Hi Guys,

    My '96 Chevy S10 pickup has started idling too fast, and takes off on me if I don't hold the brakes down.

    What causes this and how can I fix it?


    Thanks,

    Does the check engine light come on? Does it run and drive fine otherwise, and what motor is in it? I would check your Throttle Position Sensor.

    Is it a TBI or fuel injected? If it's a TBI, check the cruise control adjustment screw right on the side of the TBI. Mine was a few turns off and it did the same thing.
