IN THE PAST THREE MONTHS, I HAVE EXPERIENCED A "STICKING ACCELERATOR" 8-10 TIMES WHILE DRIVING MY 1995 FORD TAURUS. WHILE AT SPEEDS IN THE 35-40 MPH RANGE, I BECOME AWARE THAT THE CAR IS ACCELERATING; WHEN I TAKE MY FOOT OFF THE ACCELERATOR THE CAR CONTINUES TO SLOWLY ACCELERATE. APPLYING THE BRAKE DOES NOT RELIEVE THE CONDITION, AND IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO BRING THE CAR TO A STOP. SHIFTING FROM DRIVE TO NEUTRAL RESULTS IN THE ENGINE RUNNING UP TO MORE THAN 4000 RPM. ON SOME OCCASIONS, TAPPING THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL SEVERAL TIMES CLEARS THE PROBLEM, AND THE ENGINE GOES BACK TO A NORMAL IDLE SPEED. ON OTHER OCCASIONS, I HAVE HAD TO GO INTO PARK AND TURN OFF THE IGNITION KEY. WHEN RESTARTING, THE ENGINE SEEMS TO ACT NORMAL. MY LOCAL GARAGE DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM AS A FAULT IN THE CRUISE CONTROL. I HAVE HAD THEM DISCONNECT THE CRUISE CONTROL. IN CHECKING ON-LINE, IT APPEARS THIS PROBLEM HAS OCCURRED TO A NUMBER OF OTHERS WITH THE SAME CAR.
