Mine did this too. It was the return sping cable popped off. Mechanic took 10 seconds to put it back on and problem solved.

Check the plantum gasket under the throttle body and I would call a dealer to see if this is under warrenty and have the idle speed control sensor checked also

Car stalls when foot off gas pedel does not hold idle


these trucks are equipped with an idle speed control motor. What you're describing sounds like that part has stopped working. The part is designed to maintain idle when gas pedal is released. Now if you hear an audible hissing noise under the hood, then theres a vacuum leak which can cause the same problem, but it sounds like the idle control motor. Good luck.

Why wont the cruise control work on a 2005 ford taurus but the cruise light comes on


The first thing to check is the tail lights. The cruise control will not work if any lights are out. Changing to LED tail lights also causes the cruise to not work.

open the hood and check to see that the throttle cables are not out of place, if everything looks ok then unhook the cruise control cable from the throttle body (black plastic end) by pulling up on the cable end. this will disable your cruise control from making your car accelerate at unwanted times. sounds like there may be a problem with the cruise control servo.

Check for anything that may be against your throttle cable. Look from the throttle body and follow it to the firewall. Your throttle body (butterfly could be staying open) The throttle body may need to be cleaned, once these get gunk built up, the butterfly will not close completely. If it can't go to a close state, the it's like having your foot on the gas pedal a little. The cleaner can be purchase at a local auto store. (throttle body cleaner)
