93 Ford Ranger Engine Revs on its own.....

I have a 93 Ford Ranger stick shift. The problem I am having is when
I change gears on occasion the car will continue to accelerate even if
my foot is not on the gas pedal. When I take it out of gear the
engine revs up and then it continues to accelerate when I put it back
into gear. Any ideas what might be the problem? Please help!!!!

My first guess would be the throttle is sticking. Yank off the air duct
from the throttle body and take a look. You can clean it if necessary with
throttle body cleaner. I've not heard of throttle cables sticking on that
year but I'd check that too.

Probably the IAC valve. Remove it and clean it up really good. When they
get carboned up, the valve sticks which causes the engine to rev on its own.
If its in too bad of shape, I'd replace it.
