first check that all the vacume pipes from throttle body to cylinder head are ok with no leaks as this would upset the maf and produce a rich mix then it could be a throttle position sensor problem or its voltage /idle controlle valve requires cleaning you dont say how high the car revs,on 1999-2000 2L zetec e engines there is a known fault with the idle air valve which also causes over revving
