2004 f-150 , engine stalls or sputters when pressing the accelarator /check engine light on/prake brake light on

First thing to do is get the computer checked for trouble codes.
Could be the throttle position sensor or other components.

I have a 01 saturn SC2 (auto). When i put it in park, the RPM's rev up high, and dont go back down until i put it into gear. Any ideas what this could be?

Stuck throttle linkage or bad throttle position sensor. Also possible is an air leak on the Intake manifold. What happens is that you allow a certain amount of air to come into the engine when the throttle cable is pressed. But if you have an air leak, additional air is coming in the engine and it is like you have the throttle opened further.

You should have the engine shut off and then look at the throttle cables and work the controls. They should operate easily and shut smoothly. If they do not work smoothly there is a problem.

You also can check the gaskets on the intake manifold by using an old spray bottle and mist water onto the seams of the top of the engine while it runs. If the RPM changes or the engine dies, you have found a gasket to fix or tighten.

The engine should not idle so fast as to cause you to ride the brake hard to stop the vehicle. Autozone, Advance, or Oreilys autoparts will scan your car for free. Sometimes they are reluctant if the "Check" light is not on, but revving up may spur them to help you.

the problem may be in the mas. Mas Airflow Sensor. Locate on the air filter or in the line between the throttle body. Usually when these go out the car won't rev up very quick. if you slowly press on the gas pedal the rpm's will climb a little at a time. Hope this is helpful.

Having supptering at 4,000rpm

If the car is in park and you rev the eninge up with no load the computer in th car will hit a rev limiter not allowng the engine to blow up.It will sound bad but there is nothing wrong with your car.Now on the other hand if your driving down the road and this is going on you could have a fuel or ignition problem.
