Default accelerates without pressing gas pedal

this problem started all of a sudden. didnt have any issues till yesterday.
looks like someone tried to mess up with my car when it was parked on the street..as there is a huge dent on the front hood. it accelerates even before i press the gas pedal.

Auto or stick, do you have curise control? Sound odd but I sure would like to help or learn what is causing this.

Does the car just start accelerating by itself or does it have a higher idle then it did before?

I'm having a hard time understanding what the issue is. Explain in deatil, don't be afraid to add too much detail and maybe we can pin-point the issue.

Thanks, John Smith

If the damage is significant to where the trottle assembly is, then yes, it could be the reason. The cable and assembly are underneath a panel, so, not so much easy to see.

hi JOhn,
i start the car in neutral .it starts accelerating by itself when i start the car ( upto 2000 rpm) even before i shift to gear. if i apply gear and drive it pushes faster than usual.

some street drunkards damaged by bonnet badly last night. i dont see any damage inside. i was wondering if the problems were related.

thanks

When you start up, it should rev up to about 2-3k because of the idle control valve. Once it has become started, the engine, it should even out at a lower idling level. If it continues, clean the valve. You have a 96 with the 1.9 but its pre-emission revision so you dont have a secondary air pump or anything else. You may also have faulted vacuum lines.
