Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My1996 Buick Roadmaster Rev's up really high
after I start the car then it goes down. Also there is
an intermittent sqeek sound when I accelerate.
What could this be?

1 Answer


It may need a good throttle body cleaning and a tune up. When were the spark plugs last changed? Has the throttle body ever been cleaned? Has the air filter recently been changed?
