    Hi

    Most of the time this is a vacuum leak problem. Try covering the throttle body with your hand or something, the engine should die. If the engine keeps running it is definately a vacuum leak. Mine was the throttle body gasket. Could be intake manifold gasket or a vacuum hose. Try adjusting screw on throttle body, mine had to be turned almost all the way in. There also a good article on this site for other things to check. It is a common problem. Good luck.

    Chris
