Why does engine run rich at times under acceleration?


not enough detail
to get an engine to accelerate , the air /fuel mixture is moved to rich in accordance with engine rpms
the more rpms the richer until the peak rpms are reached
( accelerator pump-power valve in carbies and ECM settings according to accelerator position
black exhaust smoke in diesels
so if you press the accelerator slowly then the air/fuel mixture is altered constantly in relation to the pedal setting
If you floor the pedal then it moves to rich and you get black exhaust smoke until the air mixture is again in balance

I can go from park to drive without using the


Uuuh... No. There is an electrical link between the brake pedal and the transmission to prevent that from happening.
1. It keeps kids from pulling the lever out of park when they are too small to reach the pedals (first hand experience with that one back in the 60's!).
2. It keeps grownups from pulling it into gear with the engine revved up and crashing into things in parking lots and driveways.
3. Transmissions go from Park to Reverse, Neutral, then Drive. Without the brake on, there would be lots of excessive shocks to the transmission.

Car accelerates itself


what year car, all are different, no year, no real help.

please do elaborate that
im doing what?
is this a problem parked, (in parking , implies you are stopping while driving?) what?
does this failure, happen, in PARK? (shift lever in park)
or is parking a verb, in that, im going to park but are attempting it.

questions.
is engine hot or cold, does it fail in hot or cold only or both.
the dash gauge shows, the engine temperature, a key fact.

are the floor mats hitting the gas pedal. like on most toyota's it seems?
are your feet, hitting the wrong pedals,
driving with snow ski boots?
if the fuel pedal is not sticking, then its a real problem.
for sure dont drive car... like this. if it is a real engine problem.

and yes, all cars can fail and do that.
just sticking throttle , and bingo.

I have a 2008 Ford Escape, 3.0L V6. I just had a Super 40 flowmaster professionally installed today. I never tried revving my engine in neutral before, but I tried today so I could hear what the new...


Hello there,

This is a normal operation, all your doing is hitting the rev limiter. It's there to protect the engine from over revving. The Powertrain Control Module or PCM cuts fuel to the engine intermittently to keep the engine from revving past a predetermined RPM when in "neutral", and in "park" if it's an automatic. Just in case something like a foreign object or a small child or animal were to inadvertently depress the accelerator pedal and rev the engine too high and damage the engine in result. I hope this info helps, and just for peace of mind, I am a Master Certified Ford Technician. Enjoy your new exhaust!! I'm sure it sounds great!!

Have acceleration problem when passing


really need a bit more information.does the engine sound slow or is it revving quite high as you are trying to overtake another car?slow may be a blocked fuel filter and or air filter.revving but slow moving may be a slipping clutch if it is a manual gearbox,or a worn transmission if it is an automatic(although check the fluid level while idling in park,and handbrake on firmly.)
Hope this helps,if not if you can supply some more info,then I can be more precise in diagnosis and repair

Hard shifting, revving of the engine, trouble


Your going to need a scanner hooked up to look at data. There is no other way without guessing.
