Question about 2000 Ford Contour
2000 Ford Contour, starting at about 40 mph, engire speeds up and slows pretty much on it's own when foot is on the pedal. Sometimes rather violently. Feelsvery much like a poorly performing cruise control. Have had timing belt replaced, tuneup done. Trans appears to be fine after checking.
Transmission was initially misdiagnosed as being ok. The problem was the "range sensor", which showed up on the transmission shops diagnostic computer on a second look.
Replacement of the range sensor solved the problem. This was a $150.00 fix. Unfortunately a lot of other cash was spent because of the initial miss.
