I am thankful for the vast experience the folks here. My 99 Sho is displaying unusual behavior. When it is idling it sometimes starts steadily increasing the RPM's. I have tried tapping the gas pedal to stop it. It is going to fast to put into gear so the only thing I can do is shut it off. I am not sure if it is happening while driving, a few times seemed like it might be.
The local mechanic thinks I have smoked too much weed but he has not seen it yet.
Any suggestions ?
