I WAS DRIVING DOWN FREEWAY WHEN CAR KEPT ACCELERATING AFTER I HAD TAKEN FOOT OFF OF GAS PEDAL. EXITED FREEWAY AND HAD TO USE BOTH FEET ON BRAKE PEDAL TO GET CAR TO SLOW DOWN. AT THIS POINT, THE ENGINE RPM'S WERE STUCK AT 4000 AND ENGINE WAS REVVING AS HIGH AS IT COULD GO. I MANAGED TO GET CAR HOME AND AT THAT POINT, I STARTED CAR BACK UP AND THE ENGINE WAS STILL REVVING ALL THE WAY UP TO 4000 RPM'S. SO, I STEPPED ON THE GAS PEDAL ( WHILE IN PARK ) A FEW TIMES AND IT RETURNED TO NORMAL RPM'S. BUT NOW, I CANNOT USE THE CRUISE CONTROL. THIS HAS HAPPENED 2 TIMES SO FAR. THE SECOND TIME I WAS ON RESIDENTIAL STREET AND I TURNED A CORNER AND CAR WOULD NOT SLOW DOWN WHEN I APPLIED BRAKES. SO I SIMPLY PUT CAR IN NEUTRAL AND SUDDENLY THE ENGINE BEGIN TO REV UP TO 4000 RPM'S AGAIN SO I STEPPED ON GAS PEDAL ABOUT 10 TIMES AND EVENTUALLY IT RETURNED TO NORMAL RPM LEVELS.

Now lower prices on ALL K&N products. Save up to 15% / $85.
