Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 1986 Vette is having a problem all of a sudden when I start it it runs really.high, 2400 rpms. And it doesn't go down.  The only thing I have done is spray some WD40 on the accelerator cable.

Sounds like either a vacuum leak or a bad IAC (Idle Air Control) valve. HTH. -Jim

Have the sensors checked. Something is out of whack and the computer is getting a wrong message. Look very closely and see if you can find any lose wires or hoses. Did you spray the WD-40 after it raced or before?
