05 taurus HELP! TECHS!!

My mom just showed up at my house and her car threw 2 codes. P0316 which is a crank position sensor and a P0455 code, something about emission control system leak. She said her car is surging while going down the road and she can hardly get it stopped, its overrunning her brakes. Any ideas guys??? I gotta get her on the road. Would the crank sensor cause that type of behavior?

Dan the P0455 could be anything from a broken vacuum line to the gas cap being loose. Replace crank sensor and go from there

Ok dave, thanks for the help. I did find her gas cap was 1 click from all the way. I will try to get that sensor replaced. It is really weird. The rpms just keep climbing by itself. I wonder if its cruise related.

I fixed that, but that doesn't explain the acceleration with out hitting the pedal.

Crank sensor will definately do it, being it may be seeing higher timing. Like Dave said, replace it and go from there.
