Dakota 6-cyl

  • 68,547 miles
Veh RPM started to go up on its own.I stopped vehicle put transmission in neutral and engine would rev up from 1400 RPM to 2400 RPM every 2 seconds I turned veh off and restarted and engine stayed at 2400 RPM and would not come down to a normal idle speed. Was able to drive veh home. This has happened four separate times with same results.
