Engine Performance problem
2003 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 58000 miles
Car starts and idles fine. When in drive, I get up to speed and release the gas peddle and the RPM's will not decrease. Car does eventually slow down, but only after miles of travel. I have actually travelled several miles at 45 miles an hour with no acceleration from me. Once I hit the brakes it will slow down, but it's almost like the gas peddle is always being pressed down a little, but only when I'm driving. If I'm stopped at a light, I will be idling at 800 rpms. But once I take my foot off the brake, RPMs will slowly climb up to 1500 rmps then shift into next gear.I haven't tried letting it go further than that. Although car was doing this already, I had a Check Engine Light with a code for the TPS, I replaced the TPS and reset code, light hasn't come back on yet.
