You get allot of hits searching for this on google, but this forum seemed like the best place to ask.
My 1998 Taurus accelerates on it's own in bursts, seemingly random.
-Only happens once the car is warm - like when it's hot outside and I'm stuck in stop/go traffic on my way home.
-The radio tends to pop or even turn off when it happens. The dash lights light up like that car is turned off with a key in the ignition
I have replaced the TPS already. I think I'm going to try and look for a vacuum leak tonight, maybe replace the IAC?
I was thinking it might be the cruise control acting wonky, but if it was I'd imagine it would happen regardless of temperature.
-Any feedback/suggestions is really appreciated. I'm definitely no mechanic and this issue is scaring the **** out of my wife
