Could be one of many things! I'd start with the cheapest first which would be the temperature sender. This reads the resistance of the coolant and sends information to the cars ECU to help it decide how much fuel/air mix is needed. If the sensor is duff, the car could think it needs the wrong mixture c reating an over fuelling issue....hence the high revs!

Worth a shot and the part should cost you less than a score

Report back here with the results. If it ain't that maybe we could point you in another direction.
