    if it is revving to 3 to 4000 rpm, by itself w/o u giving it gas, then yes something is definately wrong.

    it could be anything, when was the last time u got a tune up, sparks plugs, oil change, new air filter. I could be a bad O2 sensor, or something else.

    Get your idle/timing checked out. At rest in neutral, the car should stay a tick below one, or not too much higher than that. Three of four grand is way too high.
