Default 1997 Honda Civic Revving after warmed up?

1) I have a 97 Honda Civic DX coupe (143,000 miles) which is revving at idle only and only when it has warmed up. It will rev from about 900rpms to 1,700rpms. Also, I just purchased this car and it had been sitting for a while. Any Ideas?3) On the highway at speed over 65mph the steering wheel shakes alot.3) The A\C is not working. According the my gauge the system has enough refrigerant.Thanks for your help!

1) sounds like a vacuum leak or you need to getting timing adjusted2) wheels need alignment, check air pressure and have them balanced and maybe rotated as well. 3) Check all the A/C lines and fuses Hope that helps you get on the right track to fixing your problems!
