Best Answer

I have the same problem with a '98 that was just purchased. I haven't figured it out yet but, in the small amount of time I have had to look into it I believe it probably has something to do with my throttle position cable sticking. Also another symtom I have is that the car shifts wrong. It acts like it's always in passing mode like we've got it floored even when driving easy.
