car trouble robbing gas
Ive been having some issues with my rodeo and I thought I would ask everyone if they could help figure out whats up.

Sometimes when I start my car the engine revs pretty high and then will drop back down to a normal idle. This has happend a few times in the past 2 months. last weekend I go to start my car and it starts but stalls right away, when I put my foot on the gas it stayed running but as soon as I let off it would stall again. The problem didnt happen agian the next day when I started it up but it agian idled really high and then dropped back down to a normal idle within 10 secs or so.

Any help would be amazing I am pretty mechanically inclined just dont know evenything about cars and dont want to just start replacing things that might not be causing the problem. I was thinking it was the throttle position sensor that is going bad?

Thanks agian

I would check vacuum lines first, make sure they're all connected, and that none are cracked or anything. I think a bad crankshaft position sensor can also cause it to shut off, and probably a bunch of other sensors too.

Is the check engine light on?

no check engine light
Thanks for your input. The check engine light has never come on, which is kind of a pain.
