high as if I've got my foot on the accelerator. When it is put in drive, it
continually accelerates to at least 45 mph with my foot coming no where near
the accelerator. Can someone please clue me in to what is happening and
possibly how to fix it?
That would be your transmission malfunctioning. Did you check the
tachometer (if equipped) on your vehicle to see how fast the transmission
was going? I've had that problem before on my Taurus and what I would do,
shift your car into neutral, while holding your foot on the brake and see if
the engine would idle slower, if it does, leave your car into neutral and
turn off the engine. Then start the car the car agian. If problem continues,
see a qualified technician to have your transmission fixed.
