Could be a dirty fuel filter, or a faulty fuel pump, try running some fuel injector cleaner through it. But it most probably it will be the fuel filter or pump.

2002 ford taurus gas pedal goes to the floor and getting no acceleration. the pedal itself is loose and won't retract into the up position.


The spring or wire that connects your pedal to the throttle body may broken or damaged. Check under your hood and look at the throttle body (it's the carburetor looking thing). There should be a steel wire connected to it coming from the back of the engine bay. It should connect on the side where you'll see a few springs. If nothing looks broken there, turn the part of the throttle body connected to the spring and wire. If it revs up when you move it, then the cable could be broken somewhere between there and the gas pedal.

Alternatively, the linkage on the pedal could have been disconnected some how. Check behind and above the gas pedal to see if eveything is connected properly.

Peugeot 206 stalling, either cuts off or I floor the gas pedal


When you "floor the gas pedal" the computor goes into a bypass mode (emergency mode). This honestly sounds a lot like a problem I ran into a while back on a Dodge truck. Problem was a cracked intake manifold (plastic). Short version: vacuum leak.

Air conditioner stops when i accelerate rapidly


The air cond compressor is supposed to stop, but only if the gas pedal is pushed to the floor.
If it is cutting off and the pedal is not all the way down, you could have a problem with the throttle position sensor.
Cutting off during hard acceleration gives you a few more horsepower.

No speed when gas pedal is to floor tranny light came on


With the oil light coming on and the brake pedal being hard to press I would say that the engine stopped hence no vacuum -no power assist from the booster.- hard brake pedal. The lock uo feeling may come from the engine seizing up while you were still in gear

When I press the pedal to the floor I get nothing.


I'm not to sure on this one but i had a very similar problem with one of my cars it turned out to the the throttle position sensor had gone bad. In my case though everything was fine till the car heated up. Then I never know what was going to happen. Most the time at lights my care would just stall when i hit the gas. I though it was a vacuum hose issue but there was no leek. If the throttle position sensor is not working or is not working like it should then the engine will not respond to the gas pedal being hit. Or will rev real high when not being hit. I hope this helps you and solves you issue!

Take an analog ohmmeter, remove connector from TP sensor, and touch probes on terminals of sensor, try combination of 2 until you see reading increase as gas pedal pushed & decrease as pedal released by someone, while engine off, and key off.. Have them slowly, & gradually push pedal, as you watch meter. Reading should increase slowly & gradually as well. If you see it climbing, then quickly drop off, then jump back up, it's faulty. Try to concentrate more on the position of gas pedal where you experience the engine cutting out. Costs nothing to try it.

Cruise control and throttle pedal go to a butterfly aperature on throttle body.  Look in the engine compartment and while someone pushs on gas pedal.   Look at the area where the cable comes out and goes around a semicircular widget (throttle body butterfly).  Cruise control has another cable that joins this same plate. Check for slack in cable, clear cable path,  and look for anything in that area that might be broken or routed wrong.  
good luck
