    My 1998 Chevy Malibu 3.1V6 Has High Idle

    Hi,

    I'm new to this forum. Does anyone have a suggestion on how to fix a high idle on a 98 Chevy Malibu with the 3.1 V6? The car has just over 90k miles on it. The high idle just started today. My wife said that the car will take off on it's own if the break isn't pressed hard and it won't decelerate if you're driving down the road.

    Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Mine would sometimes do that, but only in idle in park. If I revved it, it'd stay, but the moment I put it in gear, it stopped. (Course, I had a Old Cutlass of the same year, but it's the same mechanicals)

    Never figured out what it was though, sorry.
