Default 2000 ranger, 4cyl.

I apologise for my previous partial post of Nov 18. Somehow the first part got lost.
I have a 2000 4 cyl. with manual trans. and the idle speed is erratic. engine will suddenly go to a high idle, 2000/2500rpm approx. when driving.I have to switch off and restart to correct. Throttle cable is not binding. Suggestions please. rmhc.
I hope this is clearer now, thanks in advance, rmhc..

does this happen while in gear or with the clutch in if a manual? also only while driving or at a stop sign at idle, what if you lightly press the gas peddle same thing or will it hold a rpm while pressing the gas? at say 2200prm... I would say look at your IAC but not much info

Check all your vaccuum lines. Make sure there are no leaks. Clean your MAF. Can't say it will fix your problem, but it's a good place to start.
