Car stays accelerated?

Alright guys it's been happening for a few days and it's getting quite a bit annoying, every time I put the car in neutral the car stays revving at 2k Rpms for a few seconds and then goes back down to 1100 Rpms. Also the car drives by itself without me having to press the gas.

Anyone have any idea wth could be happening?

Possibly a vacuum leak, or the IAC has failed.

I disconnected the battery for a few minutes, car seems to be running fine now. I have no idea why it did that.

Also, I'm looking in to some CAI kits, mostly just for looks , I know they don't really do much. Any of you guys have experience with the SR or the UPR intakes?

I just put an SR intake on mine. Absolutely no change whatsoever. I was at least hoping for more sound, but with the filter buried in the front fender, if it is making more sound, I can't hear it.

If I was going for in looks, I would get a K&N or Airraid, I personally like the look of the cone filter inside the engine bay instead of by the fender like bbk

No change in mileage.

Then it would be a hot air intake.

For what a "CAI" does (not) do, I refuse to spend $300-400 just for the name. That being said, with the filter in the engine bay, you would be able to hear it.

I live in Florida and I don't like the idea of the intake going into the fender well too much

I've looked around for an intake either the filter in the engine bay , but nothing besides the $200+ on AM

It's quite safe in the fender. On top of that if anything you would likely hurt performance, even if only by a tiny amount, sucking in nice hot engine bay air. Regardless, any money spent on something with no gains, or at a loss, seems like money wasted. Unless of course you just want to pretty up the engine bay. But then your going for form over function.

I long for the sound of an old school 4bbl carb when you get on it. Have a hot air intake on my truck, but it's a TBI. Sounds just like an old quadrajet when the secondaries open up. Lol
