Throttle may be sticking in throttle body or you have a major vacuum leak. Spray throttle body with throttle body cleaner and check all of your vacuum hoses.

Also may want to check your ( TBS ) switch. That is your throttle position switch it may not be closing your throttle and may need to be replaced.
