STOP AT GAS STATION AND TURNED TRUCK OFF AND ENTERED STORE. RETURNED TO TRUCK AND CRANKED. PUT IN DRIVE DROVE AROUND STATION TO ENTRANCE OF MAIN HIGHWAY. ABOUT 20 YARDS TO STOP SIGN TO HIGHWAY I WAS GOING ABOUT 5 MPH AND I LIFTED RIGHT FOOT OFF OF GAS PEDAL TO APPLY BRAKE. THE TRUCK SLOWLY STARTED TO SPEED UP. I APPLIED THE BRAKE WITH ONE FOOT AND THE TRUCK STARTED TO APPLY MORE GAS UNTIL I HAD BOTH FEET ON THE BRAKE AND PUSHING AS HARD AS POSSIBLE AND IT WAS PUSHING ME TOWARD THE HIGHWAY IN FRONT OF A ONCOMING CAR. THE BACK TIRES STARTED TO SPIN. I PUT THE TRUCK IN NEUTRAL THE ENGINE REVVED TO AROUND 6-1/2 RPM BEFORE I COULD TURN THE SWITCH OFF. I SIT THERE FOR ABOUT 30 SECONDS WITH ENGINE OFF THEN RESTARTED THE TRUCK AND IT WAS OK.. I HAVE AN APPOINTMENT ON 7/18/2011 WITH A FORD DEALERSHIP TO HAVE THE TRUCK LOOKED AT. I HAVE LOOKED OVER YOUR WEB SITE AND THERE HAS BEEN MANY OTHER F 150 TRUCKS WITH THE SAME PROBLEM IT SEEMS AS MINE. I THINK YOU NEED TO THINK ABOUT TALKING TO FORD MOTOR COMPANY ABOUT A POSSIBLE RECALL. I HAVE A 17 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER THAT SOMETIMES DRIVES MY TRUCK AND THAT WAS THE FIRST THING THAT I THOUGHT OF. WHAT IF SHE HAD BEEN DRIVING WHEN THIS HAPPENED, WOULD SHE HAVE REACTED AS FAST AS I DID BEFORE BEING PUSHED OUT IN FRONT OF THE ONCOMING CAR.. JUST SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT..
