My cars acting crazy.

Asked by Sep 25, 2017 at 11:28 AM about the 1992 Ford Thunderbird LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 92 ford Thunderbird 3.8 engine and
v6. One day after about 3 months of owning
it, it decided to start to drive itself. It'd start
the car and I wouldn't even have to press on
the gas to go. And it go 30mph on its own
and try to even accelerate more. My brother
did something which made that stop. Now it
just trys to accelerate a lil bit every once in
awhile. But now my rpm and engine power is
all messed up. When I start the car it jumps
to 2k rpm then slowly decreases to 1k rpm
but it jumps up and down slightly from there.
My engine reacts the same. And it I try to
take it on the freeway it'll make it to 40mph
before it slips and trays to jump to 3 and 4k
rpm with barely any engine power. I can still
slowly get it going faster if I baby the rpm.
Also the car is making a really loud noise
that sort of sounds like a very large boat. So
any help? I don't know where to even start.
