I have Mercury Sable 1995 3.8 liter engine and automatic transaxle. Few
months ago I replaced head gaskets and now I fill some changes. When I
drive and stop (depress brake) and then start again (release brake) car
moves even without touching gas pedal, faster than was.
How can I adjust to make it slower.
Thank everybody for your advices. Eugene

Sounds like either:
Your compression went up and you actually have some power now, or you
may have caught your throttle cable when you changed the headgaskets,
and it may be pulling the throttle partly open. To check this, what's
your idle speed? (checked at the tachometer, )
There's really nothing you can do at the transaxle to adjust how fast
the car takes off.

What's the status of the plugs, wires? Does this vehicle have a DIS
pack or distributor? If it has a distributor, change the cap, rotor,
and plugs and wire, plus, change the air filter,
Basically, give it a tune up and let us know what's up..... because
most trans problems won't create your symptoms,
LMB, Appreciate your advices.
My Mercury has distributer.
Resently I changed airfilter and took off plugs and they are identical
and look OK. I also bought a device to check ignition ( needle with
resistor to the ground). Idle RPM become slower when each wire was
grounded. At dark time I started engine and have not seen any sparks.
In this case should I replace cap, rotor and wires?
