Have a '95 Windstar. Was traveling about 45 mph today and the rpm gauge continued to stay where it was and the brakes barely stopped the car, while the engine continued to race as if still moving at 45 mph. Put it in neutral and engine still raced. Green light and put in drive and tires screeched and started running rough. Within a block, the rpm gauge went back to where it should be for the speed I was traveling. I am positive it was not a stuck accelerator pedal. Scary!

Second, I pressed and held the pedal and then started the truck.The pedal sank towards the floor only slightly. Third, I ran the engine for

1997 VW brakes (not a GLS)....was driving and had to step hard on brakes due to truck veering into my lane and the brake went all the way to the floor. Up to that point brakes were fine. I only have 73000 miles on the car and my brakes and rotors were recently changed. The brake pedal does not sink to the floor when the car is off. I'm hoping its just the brake fluid. Can you help me? Sue

Brakes (rear) Previous owner (1 month ago) changed the left rear brake cylinder. Pedal felt spongy when I bought the truck, so I bled the right rear, then the left rear brake cylinders. I'm 99.99% positive that I had no air left in those cylinders, and the master cylinder was kept topped-off the whole time. However, now the BRAKE light comes on whenever I press the brake pedal. What did I do wrong, or is there something else I should look at?
