Well you can try to reset the throttle like this:
-Push gas pedal to the floor
-Turn key to the "on" position
-Keep throttle depressed an count off thirty seconds
-Turn key to the "off" position
-Release throttle fully

Start the car after that and see what happens.

you can reset throttle body sensor by

unhooking battery for about an hour or so and then reconnecting it, turning the ignition to the on position but not starting the engine. leave it there for about 15 minutes. then turn it off. should be done after that.
