F-150 8-cyl

  • 33,527 miles
I was on the interstate 30 East bound just East of downtown fort worth traveling at 55 mph in my 2009 F 150. I began accelerating to overtake a slower vehicle. The throttle stuck at what seem to be a wide open position, I had passed the car and let off the gas and pressed the brake 3 times before for the truck stopped accelerating and I had reached a speed of 95 mph before I was able to get the truck back under control. It seemed like the throttle was stuck for around 10 seconds, which was a very scary 10 seconds. I just finished reading a few forums where the dealership said it was the rubber floor mats that caused the problem. Well I have not put floor mats in my truck so that was defiantly not the cause of the problem.
