Thunderbird 8-cyl

This complaint is reguarding a 2002 Ford Thunderbird. I am the origianl owner, and have had the car in a Ford repair shop 4 times for the same problem. The engine throttle sticks, usually when the the brakes are applied. The last incident resulted in the car running through the kitchen of my house. Ford can not find any reason for this reoccuring problem
