This is the fourth event of increasing engine RPM when depressing brake to stop at a stop sign. As in two other events, no traffic was approaching so I had immediately went from a stop (noting increasing engine RPM) to removing foot from brake pedal to go to gas pedal to proceed on past stop resulting in the increasing engine RPM being a non-event in terms of engine racing out of control. Not so with a third event in which I stopped at an automatic gate and had to stay stopped with engine RPM again increasing and continuously to increase to the point that I had to lock down on brake to keep from being pulled into the gate and was able to completely stop by cutting off the ignition. This third racing out of control was reported by confirmation number (ODI) 10355856. This third event resulted in the vehicle manufacturer asking me to take car to local dealer where car was left for a day with result of 'no trouble found' and service advisor's opinion "you had foot on brake and gas at the same time". not so. I had specifically checked for this condition at time of attempted stop. This third event occurred 9/15/2010.

Ford crown vic police interceptor,2007: On two previous occasions, upon depressing brake pedal at stop sign, engine would seem to begin to race; however, after stop I would immediately let off brake to go on through stop sign and engine was normal on acceleration. To-day as I left my parking space I approached an automatic gate to pass through and depressed brake pedal to wait for gate to open and engine began to race to the point that I was unable to hold vehicle back and turned off ignition to avoid hitting gate. A large amount of black smoke resulted from racing engine. After engine shut-down, I shifted to park, started engine and had normal idle. I depressed brake to shift into drive and proceeded through gate in normal manner. The only common system that I am aware of (other than possible electrical/computer) to the fuel control is the vacuum system associated with the brake vacuum booster and whatever vacuum may affect the fuel feed. The foot pedal was definitely in an idle position. I am certain that this engine racing problem is initiated by my applying brakes.
