looking for help

Got an EA , just got it roadworthy and registered , now when driving and come to a stop the damn thing keeps on high revs and seems like it wants to take off all the time. I was told it could be the throttle sensor and on the model i have with a 4 speed auto there are 2 sensors. Can I change sensors myself or do I have to get the comp reset or something. Any help would be greatfully appreciated.

Re: looking for help

And is it easy to put new sensors on yourself or do I have to get a mechanic to do it as one told me there are 2 sensors , one on the gear box and one on the carbie or whatever it is.

Check your idle speed dampener first - I told another bloke about this on General tech.
