Question about 2002 Ford Taurus
I am assuming the car is automatic?
If so then it could be 2 things.
1 the slave cylinder for the gearbox needs bleeding through or may be leaking in air through tiny pin holes. Worth trying this first as it is much cheaper.
2 and the most likely cause is the torque converter, this converts the power from the engine to the gearbox. when they start to go wrong the car will creep forward, it is not accelerating really it is because the converter is using the idle revs and converting then to power to soon. very rarely can these be fixed and the average cost for a ford is around $250 to $400
Hope that helps, p.s your mechanic should have known this!!!
