    Hi thanks for the info. My mechanic finally got it to act up. first they replace the idle control motor, but that did not do it. then they figured out it was the throttle position switch (TPS) and when they replaced that, the problem disappeared!

    2000 tundra shakes when on the gas. Gets worse around 2000 rpms. Shaking doesn't seem to be in the wheel or the pedals. Seems to clunk when first stepping onto the gas pedal. Anyone have similar problems? suggestions?

Not sure if it'd be the same thing but i used to have a 93 thunderbird & it did the same thing. in park the rpms would be SOOOO high & it'd be loud & then in drive it'd hit 50+ with no gas pedal @ all. i found out it was what is called an "idle control valve" i went to autozone, bought it & replaced it & TA-DA!!! back to normal she went. i'd check into that to see if it could be the same thing. good luck

When i step on accelerator the car makes a very noisy sound. When i take my foot of the accelerator then no noise


I DO NOT KNOW WHAT NOISE IT DOES BUT I SAY THAT WHEN ACCELERATING YOU ARE GIVING HIGH REVS SO THE NOISE YOU MIGHT HAVE IS EITHER ANY BELT (S) ALTERNATOR,AIR CONDITIONING OR POWER STEERING. MIGHT NEED RENEWING THE BELTS OR ARE LOOSE AND NEED TIGHTENING. ALSO THERE IS ANOTHER POSSIBILITY : MIGHT AN ENGINE MOUNTING BROKEN AND ON ACCELERATING THE ENGINE MOVES ON THE MOUNTING AND POSSIBLE TOUCHING SOME METAL PART.

Ford focus cruise control


Once you have turned your cruise control on accelerate to desired speed press SET button on right hand side of steering wheel before lifting foot from accelerator, then remove foot from accelerator. pushing RESUME button will deactivate cruise control without turning it off. Then when clear of traffic push resume again to activate cruise control. It will automatically resume to previous set speed.
