INITIAL INCIDENT: WAS DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD AT APPROXIMATELY 40MPH AND PRESSED THE GAS PEDAL TO LEVEL OUT SPEED. WHEN I LIFTED MY FOOT OFF THE PEDAL, IT STUCK AND KEPT ACCELERATING. I WAS ABLE TO RELEASE IT BY PRESSING THE PEDAL AGAIN. SUBSEQUENT INCIDENTS: I HAD A FEW OTHER INCIDENTS, WHICH ARE CURRENTLY ONGOING, PENDING A MECHANIC LOOKING AT MY VEHICLE. IN THESE INSTANCES, THEY ARE SIMILAR TO THE INITIAL ONE IN THAT WHEN I LET OFF THE PEDAL, IT STICKS AND EVENTUALLY RELEASES WITH A SLIGHT 'POP' FROM THE PEDAL AREA EITHER ON IT'S OWN, WHEN I PRESS THE GAS PEDAL AGAIN OR PRESS THE BRAKE AND SLOW TO A LOWER SPEED (AROUND 5MPH). MAJOR INCIDENT: ON ONE OCCASION, THE PEDAL GOT STUCK AND THE RPM WENT UPWARDS OF 4000-5000 AND THE ENGINE WAS REVVING. NONE OF THE ABOVE - PRESSING PEDAL OR PRESSING BRAKE - HELPED WITH THE SITUATION. I EVENTUALLY HAD TO SHIFT INTO NEUTRAL AND TURN OFF THE VEHICLE. WHEN I WAITED ABOUT 30 SECONDS, I RESTARTED THE VEHICLE AND IT WENT RIGHT BACK TO RPM AROUND 4000-5000. I TRIED PRESSING THE PEDAL AGAIN TO RELASE AND AFTER 3 OR SO TRIES IT FINALLY RELEASED. I AM PLANNING TO CONTACT FORD AND LET THEM KNOW I HAVE REPORTED THIS AND SEE WHAT CAN BE DONE TO RESOLVE THIS ISSUE.
