Question about 2005 Lincoln Town Car

2 Answers

Car accelerates when I remove my foot from the gas pedal

When I start to slow down and move my foot from the gas to the brake, the car accelerates. I have checked to make sure my foot is just on the brake. It happens about 2 times a week. Had a couple of close calls. Once had to move into neutral to stop car.

do you have a transmission problem? if you press on the brake pedel with you left foot and press down far on the gas pedal with your right foot-does the car want to really take off! or does the engine just rev like neutral or slipping with no grip?

My Hyundai 2003 front brakes overheat and stop the car from moving. What might be the course?


Hi,
How far do you drive before it starts to happen? ....Do you use your Left Foot to push the brake pedal? Are you sure your foot is not on the pedal while driving?

It sounds as if the caliper is 'frozen' - the caliper is what squeezes the brake rotor/disc and slows down the car.

Engine revs but no acceleration


Clutch plate and pressure plate seem to be too weak to pull the car. Or one of the CV joints is detached from the gear box. To test the clutch plate, park the car on flat surface. Pull the hand brake up, start the car, depress the foot brake pedal, depress the clutch pedal, put the car in 1st gear, press the gas pedal and leave the clutch pedal at once, while keeping the brake pedal depressed.
Follow one of the two following statements:
1. Engine does not shut down and remain start. (Clutch plate, pressure plate and clutch bearing defective - Replace all as a set)
2. Engine shuts down. (Clutch system is OK and does not require any repair).

When slowing down the transmission feels as if it is jerking in to the next gear.


after checking fluid level is correct, try this, to see if it improves...
into drive,let car accelerate without any gas(do not touch pedal)to max speed (about 30/35mph).stop,then with 1/3rd gas pedal,accelerate to max speed(do not move foot)stop,then foot hard to floor,upto about 60mph,then stop.then only using a max of 1/3rd gas pedal,drive for about 15miles.you have just reset the drivetrain computer setings....the car is fitted with a computer controlled fuzzy logic gearbox,it will try to make you drive as eco as poss,but if used harshly the gearchange can be harsh up and down.....
if driven gently 4th will engage at 43 mph,with a slight clunk.
