I just bought a 2003 ford Taurus a few days ago I get home and put the car in park when I noticed the car is in park and is revving up. I dont know much about cars so I'm listening to everyone around me when they are not professionals I started googling myself and came up with a few things but wanna get some advice on what yall think this is so I can fix it. My girlfriend is pregnant and I'm just worried about her driving the car so I got it parked till I figure something out. So I noticed the battery is 2 years old I dont know if that means anything then yesterday noticed the serpentine belt is way to tight and now it's starting to smoke. What could this issue possibly be I dont wanna waste alot of money and not be the problem. I need some advice if anyone could plz help

Any codes? Could be vacuum leak(s) or iac. Smokin' belt may be due to a pulley seizing. Check them all, but particularly the a/c pulley. Could also be the idler or tensioner pulley.
