2010 Ford Escape rough acceleration

Asked by Aug 04, 2019 at 03:20 PM about the 2010 Ford Escape Limited FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Our 2010 Ford Escape has been having some
intermittent issues for a while. If we have been in
a lot of stop and go traffic, acceleration is
sometimes difficult. I can be at a red light and let
my foot off the brake and the idle doesn't kick in.  
And when driving at lower speeds during this time
the engine will rev very high, and will sometimes
give off a burning smell. Any ideas?  Usually if we
turn the car off for a while and start it back up the
problem goes away. Any advice as to what this
might be is greatly appreciated.
