1996 Ford Thundrbird- RPM Surging

The RPM on my 1996 Thunderbird are surging. It feels like the car is driving itself. When I put it into drive it shifts very hard. You can tell its idling high. I can take my foot off the gas and it will continue to drive unless I put the brakes on. The hand on my dash board shows the RPM flucuating between 1-2... What could be causing this??

Thanks

While driving my jeep seems to be shifting gears the rpms rev up and then goes back down almost as if surging I changed speed sensor as a guess so far but did not work?


old 1995
we need vastly more symptoms then that,sorry
if the engine surges, that is first. (surges in 1 gear)
but if a transmission down shifts that is normal, rpm rises
(after all its a lower gear) (higher numeric ratio)
find any machanic in town
ask him test drive it.!
10 min.later he wilt tell you
its trans issues.
or its engine, super easy this is driving.

seems you can not, and learning is 1hour in car class..or 10x that lacking facts of drive train functions.


stop guessing. why spend cash on a useless sensor now.
spend cash on $1 shop diagnosis and WIN.
i promise !

or get it scanned.
and post all those DTC errors. P0700? and more.
