Get your codes read. I suspect the throttle position sensor but get second opinions. Your reported RPM's are high by a factor of 10.

TS he has got to be adding a "0" I know of no engine, except maybe a motorcycle engine... and that is pushing it past extreme, that can tolerate 20,000 rpm's. No f*** way

The IAC and TPS are suspect. Also check for possible vacuum leaks.
