I have to lift up on the brake pedal with my foot to make them go off. Otherwise it looks like I have my for on the brakes when I don't.

Car has 95k+ miles on it. About 8 months ago when driving at highway speed and putting cruise control on the car would start accelerating and would not let me turn off the control. Placing the car in neutral would disengage cc, but then had very little throttle response and speed was limited to 20mph. Stopping car and placing it in park and turning engine off for a minute or two, then restart engine and had normal throttle response. Shifting into reverse or drive came with a big bang, but only one time. After that it would shift into drive or reverse normally and had full throttle control. Each time I tries cc this would happen. Three Ford dealers told me it was the clutches in the trans; remember this is an AWD car with a CVT in it.

Does anyone have an idea what this problem could be?
