Dirty throttle body, not allowing the butterfly inside to seat properly or worn butterfly...or maybe the IAC..( idle air control)...my 97 4.6 would get this when it was -40 outside...had to ride the brakes to keep it slowed down.

I would say the throttle body. I clean mine ever spring and fall and it is hard to believe the amount of dirt on it. I also clean my mass air sensor to and never a problem. I would also get a can a seafoam and put it in the gas tank. m2c

Unhappy

I was helping a buddy do valve cover gaskets on one about a year ago, and it did the same thing on re-assembly.

As soon as it started, it went WOT on its own, even with the butterfly held closed. We (both GM/ Fiero guys at heart) spent an entire evening trying to figure it out, and never did solve it. ......

BUT, common sense says that an engine acting like that is taking in false air SOMEWHERE, so I would go the routine we did...check all the vacuum hoses, intake gaskets, butterfly seats ect, ect, ect (and mechanical linkages as well)---then take it to a dealer and throw money at it until it runs right again.
