so now my cars acclerator is sticking.... it kind of feels like im always on cruise control because when i let my foot off the gas pedal it still is reving a little bit.. when i put in the clutch it wont drop below 2500 until i either start to let the clutch back out, or rev it really high.... is this an adjustment i need to do under the hood or what? anyone have this happen on any car? its really annoying. when i reved my car from under the hood i can feel it like hit a "bump" when i push down.. and then it goes past it and then when its unreving it will get stuck right there instead of releasing all the way! I NEED HELP ASAP!

Thanks

David
