Welcome to DF
You most likely have a vacuum leak. Check all your hoses for connections. You may have either a 2.0 or 2.4Liter engine. Also ck the throttle blade to see if it stuck open.

Any old car is going to leak sometime. It's like us getting liver spots and gray hair! LOL!

Are there any trouble lights on the dash on? If so, take it to a shop and have them read the codes.
