I'd have it checked for faulty Throttle Position Sensor.

    You can try removing connector from throttle position sensor, and spraying connector & sensor with contact cleaner, you may get lucky, but my guess is that it will need to be replaced.

I have a 1999 Ford Taraus and it starts reving the engine yesterday. It was turning about 2000 rpms while sitting still. Now it has reved down when first started but it will then start revving up and down...


Could be the MAF sensor. I would try scanning for codes, although sometimes the MAF sensor does not show up on scanner. sounds like the MAF to me.

My probe is stalling at traffic lights. the rpms wont stay high enough to keep the engine running.


Most modern cars with fuel injection, have to maintain a certain range of fuel pressure. There is a schrader valve in the fuel line. At this point fuel pressure can be checked. Pressure is always present. This can be dangerous, even at low pressure. Hope this helps lbreen

Throttle


Hello;
You may have a broken engine mount. As the engine revs and torques it can pull the throttle cable in such a way as to continue reving. Check for smooth operation of the throttle and cable with the engine off. I f you have smooth operation, check your motor mounts.
Thanks;

96 Ford Taurus GL Revving problem when stop then go


Did you check the transmission fluid again. You could have a major leak. Or reving the car up so high it started to burn the clutches in your transmission, resulting in replacing the transmission. Always check the fluid. A few dollars for fluid is better than 1500 bucks for a new tranny

I have same problem with 2002 laguna. Before warning lights and revving at 2000rpm starts car feels jumpy. Have to stop, take card out of slot and back again to start without fault. Happens a few miles drive later again. Anyone got a solution?
