03 Cl Slow accelerating by it self.

My problem isn't a constant nuisance but it seems to show up when the outside tempature is above 85 and I'm in town(stop and go). It is idleing high when and I have to force the brake to keep it stop. When I release it my car is VERY jerky. RPMs are normally 800 and won't go below 1200 when it acts up.

Today I noticed that it was slowly accelerating on its own and changing gears with my foot completely off of the gas. It stoped just shy of 4th hear or 50 mph.

My transmission has been rebuilt. New timing and serpentine belts. Also, both throttle bodies and sensors with it.

Any ideas are welcome. THX

Check this thread out on the 2G TL side. It sounds familiar to your issue?

THX for the link. They said to keep you coolant full and mine was 1/2 full between min and max so i topped it off. Hope that get it.

I just filled it up a few months ago. What could cause it to loose it that fast?

There also is the 'Throttle body bypass' modification that you can consider. Not sure of your location, or whether it will help with your issue, though. The factory made it this way to keep the TB warm / hot during winter driving up north. The link below shows a DIY to give you an idea:
