Anywhere from a few moments to more than ten minutes. Shouldn't really go over 2000 rpm, maybe 2200 or 2300.
But if it's higher than that, you may have a problem elsewhere. Doesn't sound that out of the ordinary though.

The first suspect I would blame if the coolant temperature sensor, it can report a false reading without a CEL. The computer will try to warm-up the car by making it rev higher.

High idle can be a sticky idle air control valve, sometimes taking the hose off of the IAC and spraying carb cleaner in can help clean it out. You can also unbolt it from the manifold and spend some time cleaning it and working the valve back and forth.

Find the source of the sqeek first.

thanks for the advise esp on the tach retrofit. The problem turned out to be a TB sensor. One other question-is there a way to lubricate a squeaky cluthc pedal?
How did you figure out it was the TB sensor, and what did you do to fix it?
