Idle sporadically racing on '97 Metro Hatchback with 1.3L

Good day people,
I have a new car and a new problem. The idle raises to maybe 2000-2500 rpm out of the blue, stays there, and then falls back to normal. It will do it while the automatic trans is in gear as well and will overcome the brakes and lurch forward at stoplights...scary. I've only owned the car since last night so I am still familierizing myself with her. Does anyone have experience with this problem on their 1.3L engine? The guy I bought it from has thrown a TON of parts at it, but still no resolution...
