1996 Esteem...The Problem: The engine, when started, starts to rev higher and higher until the engine shuts off. I'm sure it is shutting of because of the rev limiter doing it's job. But I would like to know if someone could point me in the right direction as to what may be the cause of this problem. the last time it was driven, the valves started clattering just before it shut off. From that point on, all it does is start, rev high, then shuts off.
