    When this issue occurs there are really only 2 things that cause this, low fuel pressure, possible causes are a clogged fuel filter or failing fuel pump, does this happen when you are below 1/4 tank? the other thing is the MAF, or Mass Air Flow Sensor.

When I am driving, it accelerates by itself and no cruise control

We have a 1998 Ford Taurus that does the same exact thing. It mysteriously seems to do this randomly. We have an intermittent code for the camshaft sensor which I replaced. But, this didn't solve the problem.

I think it's a design flaw.

1996 ford taurus is losing power and rpms when engine gets warm

If it was a dealer, go back & have him scan it for fault codes. Usually cheaper to have it scanned and replace one faulty part, than replace 5 parts before you hit the right one. Autozone & PEP boys apparently will scan for free if you bought it private.

Hooting sound when driving

I had a similar problem. Turned out it was a vacuum line on the firewall on the passenger's side had come off. When you accelerate, the line sucks air and makes that long "hooooooooooot" until you let off the gas. Have you noticed it's burning even MORE gas? You'll need a bright light, even in sunlight to see the lose hose line.
