Sounds like a speed sensor, or TPS misread malfunction, Have you had the codes checked? At least that should give you a place to start.

Don't put off checking this out. Could cause engine or other transmission damage. I did that once - slapped the pedal to the floor, broke a worn timing chain and scattered the engine - my stupidity.
