I OWN A 2008 FORD F-150 XLT SUPERCREW / I HAVE BEEN HAVING ACCELERATION PROBLEMS. ONCE SITTING AT AN INTERSECTION LUCKILY I WAS THE FIRST ONE AT THE LIGHT THIS VEHICLE JUST STARTED RACING AND TOOK OFF ON ME LUCKILY MY LIGHT JUST TURNED GREEN I PUT BOTH FEET ON THE BRAKES AND IT DIDN'T DO A THING AS THE TAC WAS BURIED AND ENGINE REVVING AS FAST AS IT WOULD GO BY THEN I WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE INTERSECTION AND STILL OUT OF CONTROL I PUT THE TRUCK INTO NEUTRAL THE TRUCK STOPPED BUT THE ENGINE WAS RACING SO FAST I THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO BLOW UP I THEN PUT IT IN PARK AND SHUT THE TRUCK OFF, I HAD MY TWO BOYS 14 AND 16 WITH ME TO WITNESS THIS AND WE WERE ALL SCARED TO DEATH. I FINALLY STARTED THE TRUCK BACK UP RELUCTANTLY BUT I WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF THE INTERSECTION AND IT WAS FINE I PULLED OVER INTO A SHOPPING CENTER TRYING TO CALM DOWN AND FINALLY DROVE HOME WITH NO OTHER PROBLEMS THAT DAY. SINCE THIS WAS A WEEKEND THE FORD DEALERSHIP WAS CLOSED SO ON MONDAY MORNING I WENT TO THEM THEY LOOKED IN THEIR COMPUTER FOUND NO RECALLS AND TOLD ME IF I PUT IT ON THE COMPUTER IT WOULD COST ME 60 DOLLARS.1 YEAR LATER THIS SAME THING HAPPENED TO ME THIS TRUCK TOOK OFF ON ME LIKE A ROCKET ENGINE RACING THIS TIME I WAS BY MYSELF ON WAY TO WORK I KEPT IT ON THE ROAD AS LONG AS I COULD THEN SHOT OFF INTO A FIELD WENT APPROX.1/4 MILE TAKING OUT STUMPS AND TREES IN APPROX 8IN.OF SNOW THEN WENT AIRBORNE BACK OVER THE ROAD LANDING INTO A DITCH UP AGAINST TWO TREES. I WAS SEMI CONSCIOUS WHEN I FINALLY LANDED AND STOPPED BUT ALL I COULD HEAR WAS THIS TRUCKS ENGINE RACING AS FAST AS IT COULD GO AND I COULD SEE STEAM COMING OUT OF THE FRONT IT SCARED ME SO I HAD THE SENSE TO PUT THE TRUCK IN PARK AND SHUT IT OFF. BEEN DOING SOME RESEARCH SAME COMPANY THAT MAKES THROTTLE/SENSORS FOR TOYOTA ALSO MAKES THEM FOR FORD. I TRULY BELIEVE THIS PROBLEM NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED ASAP. I'M LUCKY I'M STILL ALIVE THE NEXT PERSON MIGHT NOT BE OVER THIS OBVIOUS THROTTLE/SENSOR DEFECT.
