 Description of the problemAs i was accelerating, and get to around 40 or 45mph, the car would lunge forward and the speed would suddenly increase even if i wasn't pushing the accelerator. Then i would try to slow down the car and it would be jerking and would come to a stop finally, but the rpm would be to over 4,000 or even 5,000. It would do it for a few miles then suddenly go back to running normal. I also noticed the cruise control is not working since the car stated doing this. I took it to a mechanic and all they could find wrong with the car was that the throttle body plates were covered in gunk and they cleaned them, and i needed to replace my idle air intake valve which i had both done. From time to time the car will still accelerate suddenly without warning, and i am afraid i am going to either blow the engine from the high rpm's or run into someone if i can't get the car slowed down in time.
