A high rev often means a vacuum leak, air is getting in from sources it should not. If it has a vacuum brake booster, that is a large line, PCV system. Even intake manifold gasket. Or, there are various sensors that could have gone kaput

dave,, would any of the problems you describe leave a " code " ?

Yes. I had to run off..I wasn't finished..sorry 'bout that. But yes, if your EGR, PCV, MAF and all the other acronyms that exist, (almost as bad as the military) your OBD will show them. Sometimes they are vague, sometimes very specific.

Even though no " Engine light " coming on ? Very frustrating, I've taken care of this vehicle since day one, It has 170,000 on it and still runs brand new, now I cringe every time i go to start it....

That is curious that with the problems you describe that the CEL didn't come on. Some cars, yours I am not sure, it will come on triggered by mileage alone to remind you to have it serviced. I wish I could do better, be more help, but as you can imagine it's very difficult to diagnose these things not being at the car.
