Question about 1991 Lincoln Continental

1 Answer

Lincoln Accelerates By Itself

I am also having the problem of my 91 Lincoln Continental accelerating completely on its own up to 50 miles an hour!!! It resists braking, and when I come to a stop and try putting it in neutral or park, it seems to rev even higher. It does seem to be FORD problem, and any mechanic that tells me its my cruise control is either a **** or thinks I am one.

does it only do it when you use cruise control?
if so you may have a bad cruise release switch on the brake pedal...if not you may have a broken return cable spring on the throttle body or its binding
