Question about 1987 Ford Ranger
Engine accelerates when applying brake. What can this be?
Check for air leaks in the vacuum lines first.Try cleaning your Exhaust Gas Recycling valve (EGR valve). This can cause uncontrolled idle speed. If that does not stop the acceleration, try replacing the IACV valve (idle air control valve) if these stick it will raise your idle also.

It sounds like the shifter lock out solenoid has gone bad.It is a solenoid that releases the shifter when you push the brake pedal.

Have you tried checking your throttle positioning sensor. Possible vacuum leak or check for carbon build up in the throttle body not letting the throttle valve shut all the way.

They squeek or squeel because they may need adjustment or replacement. The noise is a safety feature when in need of replacement. Good Luck.
