RPMs too high

Hey everyone, I just bought a new 2012 arctic edition wrangler and the RPMs started reving really high and I had to pull her over. It had a smell like she was over heating. Does anyone know why this would happen? A bit concerned!

I've never heard that before, but take it to the dealer--you're under warranty so there's no sense in trying to fix it yourself. Also, maybe try posting this in the JK section here.

I did thanks! My first post. I for sure will take it in. It was the weirdest thing. The Rpms got up to 6 and it sounded horrible. I'm worried someone may have messed with my engine. I came out of work a few weeks ago and the hood of my engine was wide open. I recently had a hood lock installed.
