Was driving on highway and vehicle all of a sudden lost power kept pressing the gas pedal and it wouldn't go as felt like you wanted to turn off it would stall we have checked everything in the truck engine everything and everything seems good transmission does not have any metal shavings I did notice that for some reason the electrical panel have melted it was all completely melted and they believe that the transmission is also melted and stuck together I'm not sure because we still haven't I mean transmission has no signs that something wrong with it I think this is very thing I think this is very dangerous for a vehicle to just stop in the middle of the freeway and imagine if they would have been traffic thank god that there wasn't that nobody was right behind me cuz the truck just stopped and it was not going
