2009 Accord engine racing when stopped


Asked by Sep 03, 2016 at 11:25 PM about the 2009 Honda Accord LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My accord has 62,000 miles.  In the last few months I have noticed that occasionally when I come to a full stop the car begins to race.  I then put the car into park and then back to drive.  Once I begin to move again the problem goes away.  There is no predictable pattern as to when this will occur again.,  I have discussed this with the dealership and they looked at the car and could not find an explanation.  I'm looking for your input on why this might be happening.  My concern is losing control of the car when this happens because it occurs suddenly.  Your response would be appreciated.
