DRIVING AT 35MPH I TOOK MY FOOT OFF THE GAS PEDAL AND THE CAR CONTINUED TO ACCELERATE. I PUT THE CAR IN NEUTRAL AND THE RPM'S JUMPED TO 4000. I PUSHED THE PEDAL DOWN TO THE FLOOR AND THE THROTTLE BEGAN TO SLOW DOWN AND RETURN TO NORMAL. NOW RANDOMLY DURING ACCELERATION THE THROTTLE WILL STICK OPEN WHEN I TAKE MY FOOT OFF THE GAS, AND NOT RETURN TO NORMAL UNTIL AFTER PUSHING HARD DOWN ON THE GAS PEDAL. THIS WAS QUITE SCARY BEING ON THE ROAD AND HAVE MY CAR ACCELERATING OUT OF MY CONTROL. I READ THAT A CRUISE CONTROL CABLE CAN BECOME DISCONNECTED THAT CAN BE CAUSING THIS PROBLEM.
