2002 SC1
Default My 2002 Saturn SC1 idles at 2000 RPM while in park. There is also a knocking sound.

Okay, about two or three weeks ago I am driving down my dirt road and my car keeps trying to go 10 miles an hour without me putting any gas on it. So I get in my yard and put it in park and it is idling at 2000 RPM without me doing anything. So I cut it off and it has only been doing it maybe once a week ever since then.

Today I was driving home and it keep accelerating on its own. So I finally get on my dirt road and it does it again. So I put my car in park and cut it off. Cut it back on and it is gone, proceed down the road and by the time I get in my yard (2 minutes maybe) it is doing it again!

Then there is this knocking sound in my undercarriage. I think it may be my driver side CV because I've had it before except this time it is worse and I recently replaced the passenger side CV.

Please help, I need to know what is wrong with this car.
