yes, this is the case of a failed throttle body, in which case it needs replaced, the car is getting too much fuel causing the high idle. this needs replaced asap. you could proably find a small independant honda shop that could do the work for less.

SOURCE: 98 Honda Accord LX CODE 1259
Code 1259 indicates a V-tec system malfuntion assuming your Honda isn't a DX? Disconnect the negative battery cable so that you can clear the code. If code returns, try cleaning and/or replacing the V-tec pressure sensor. I heard of someone that had the same 4000 rpm problem you speak of and this is where they solved their problem. Good luck to you.

that code is for a Vtech system malfunction. check your oil level if its ok you should bring the car to honda unless you can handle a multimeter and have oil presure gages and the basic knowledge of how to use these items.
