problem #9

Jun 132015


  • 222,000 miles
This happened twice in the last week. While accelerating the gas pedal has gotten stuck and the vehicle increases with speed. In a panic I shifted the transmission into neutral; the engine kept revving. As I continued to attempt to un-stick the gas pedal I noticed it was all the way down to the floor. After about 20 seconds it finally un-stuck when I stomped on it several times. This happened first on a public street and last while entering the highway.
