The other day I was driving and I noticed that my car was revving up on its own. So I decided to go to a body shop and let them look at it. They said they had flushed the throtlle out. Well I get into my car after they had proceeded with that and The SOB-ing car is now even worse. The pedal seems like it sticks, but doesn't feel like it, and my rpm's are stuck at 3x sometimes, which makes it a PIA to brake and is a killer on my brakes. I almost rear-ended someone because my car just keeps moving on its own. Does anyone know what is doing this?

Sticky throttle pedal... all the 03 Grand Ams have been recalled for this however it is not unlikely that your is getting stuck. Take it somewhere, get the pedal looked at.

Thanks for posting what they did to fix it or what the actual problem was! Nobody reading here is actually curious of this info.

They flushed out the throttle again and adjusted the pedal setting

Samething happend to my mom taurus. They cleaned the throttle body and then her acc got stuck on her way home from the shop. She almost wrecked. They towed it back to the dealer and found a piece of carbon and got stuck somewhere..... Its very dangerous.
