We have a 2005 Ford Taurus. The engine has started revving by itself. When driving on the highway I can take foot off of gas pedal and car will not slow down. Revs remain high when stopped and car will accelerate as soon as foot removed from brake pedal (ie. Gas pedal does not need to be depressed for the car to accelerate). Will rev up around 1500RPMs - tried putting it in neutral and the RPMs went up over 3000RPMs. Same happened when it was put in park. This revving can also happen as soon as car is started. Can be resolved by tapping gas pedal - this brings revs down.
Took it to mechanic who disconnected the cruise control cable. He is waiting for a replacement from Ford (has already been a couple of days but new cable has not arrived yet) but car is still revving so something else must be wrong. But I have no idea what it might be so I am looking for suggestions as to what the problem might be.
have the same problem?
