There is a cable that goes from your throttle body to the transmission.This is called the throttle valve adjuster cable.It has either come out of adjustment or is bad.You need to go to someone that knows how to adjust this and your problem should go away.There is a special adjustment procedure so you can`t just move it to where ever you want.This controls when you vehicle will up shift or down shift depending on the input from the gas pedal.So have someone that knows transmissions help you or take it to a reputable shop and get it fixed.It is not that big of a job.Hope this helps.Good luck.

2004 ford taurus cruise control not working even though the light on the dash comes on when the switch is engaged


The cruise control cable has probably fallen off the throttle lever under the hood. The retainer vibrates loose over time. Either replace the cable or find a way to keep the cable attached to the throttle lever.

Cruise control not working when it was it seammed to make the motor run very ruff when i disengaged it by using brake pedal


If the cruise control makes the engine seem to run very rough until disengaging it, there could be a problem with the engine itself. As, most cruise control systems just pull on the throttle cable to maintain speed on the highway based on setting the speed with the button.

So, I would look into the engine maybe having an issue with spark plugs, or wires, or another tuneup or mechanical issue.

Cruise control went out on my 2005 ford taurus and my accelerator gets stuck at times. Should I replace the cruise control?


This is a dangerous defect. What you want to do is isolate the Cruise cable from the Throttle mechanism. Then get the Cruise cable away from the Throttle so it can not jam the Throttle accidentally.

With the engine OFF use your hand and move the remaining Throttle mechanism and feel for sticking or roughness in the control. If you feel binding, start removing the connection of the Throttle cable and work your way through all the moving parts like a Butterfly flap on the Airhorn, the TPS (throttle position sensor) and so on until you find out what is rubbing.

It is possible that the Cruise was disengaging because the Throttle parts were binding. If disconnecting the Cruise eliminates the sticking throttle, then all the problems came from the Cruise control cable or the Cruise Box. Once you have made a thorough check of the Throttle you can blame the Cruise for your problems and replace the parts.

I just need step by step direction on cruise control removal


Disconnect the cruise control cable from your butterfly pulley.

Disconnect the cable from your gas pedal and twist the fitting once to pull it through your firewall.

Unplug the actuator, remove the nuts/bolts holding your actuator and pull it out.
