2008 Ford Edge engine surge while stopped in gear

I was at a stop light with my foot on the brake when all of a sudden my 2008 Ford Edge engine surged knocking me into the car in front of me and ran down the street. I thru the shifter into park and nothing happened, finally pulled the emergency brake and stopped the car, at that time the engine went back to normal idle.

Sounds like a faulty Throttle position sensor. Warranty should pay for parts & damage, talk to your dealer. The 88 -90 ford tempos had same problem & a driving school was using them, lots of kids & instructors got the heck scared out of them, but luckily no-one injured badly.

2008 ford focus surges


run fault codes to determine why the transmission is staying in gear and not down shifting as the speed slows. Check for TCM problem. If nothing shows then have a pressure test done to determine if there is a mechanical fault in the box

Can not move the gear selecter the button will not go all the way in and the rear brake lights do not come as well


Hi Jeff,
This is an old warning issue or procedure, I had the same problem a few years ago with my Ford Taurus 1995, if rear stop lights not work, you wont be able to moved the shift out of Parking (P); this is to avoid driving without rear stop lights. If no lights, normally a fuse is blow out or all bulb lights are gone, please check.
There is an alternate procedure to be able to drive your car, but, avoid driving without Stop lights. Turn the ignition key to the point before starting the engine, this release the lock for the driving wheel and transmission shift, press the brake, put the shift in Neutral (N) and start the engine. Im not sure if your Ford Edge has the no key starting button or fob, there is a procedure to release the locks and be able to drive, should be in your drivers manual, but, again; the intention is to avoid moving the car without Stop Lights.
I hope this helps. Happy Holidays and take care.

Truck has been dying surging and dying when i come to stop at li


Try shifting to nuetral at stop signs for now. Will it keep running in gear with you foot on the brake? How about with the parking brake? You may have a simple vacuum leak at the brake booster.

Engine surge


Don't know if this will help but once had a Buick that kept doing this. Took it to the dealer several times but couldn't find the problem at first, finally replaced a small spring in my cruise control and that solved the problem.
