WHILE DRIVING 60 MPH, I LEFT OFF THE ACCELERATOR TO SLOW DOWN TO 45 MPH THE POSTED SPEED LIMIT AHEAD. AT 45 MPH, I SLIGHTLY TOUCHED THE ACCELERATOR TO MAINTAIN THE 45 MPH SPEED LIMIT, THE RPM'S WENT OVER 4000 AND WOULD NOT STOP. I APPLIED THE BRAKE, BUT THE ENGINE KEPT THE RPM'S BETWEEN 4000 AND 4200. I STOMPED ON THE BRAKE WITH BOTH FEET AND THE UN-INTENDED ACCELERATION STAYED AT THE HIGHER RPM. I COULD HEAR THE ANTI-LOCK BRAKES ENGAGE TO HELP SLOW THE TRUCK DOWN, BUT THE ENGINE LABORED OVER 4000 RPM. I WAS CONCERNED WITH NOT BEING ABLE TO STOP THE TRUCK, SO I SHIFTED THE TRANSMISSION INTO NEUTRAL AND COASTED TO THE BERM OF THE ROAD WITH THE ENGINE STAYING AT A VERY HIGH RPM. ONCE I CAME TO A COMPLETE STOP, I SHIFTED THE TRUCK INTO PARK AND THE RPM'S WERE OVER 6000. I IMMEDIATELY SHUT OFF THE ENGINE AND WAITED A FEW SECONDS BEFORE TRYING TO RE-START THE TRUCK. I CHECKED THE CONDITION OF THE FLOOR MAT ASAP TO VERIFY IT WAS NOT ON TOP OF THE ACCELERATOR. THIS HAPPENED TO MY WIFE LESS THAN A YEAR AGO AND NOTHING WAS FOUND AT THE FORD DEALERSHIP AND THE OGC REVIEWS SUGGESTED THAT THE FLOOR MAT MAY HAVE CAUSED THE FIRST UN-INTENDED ACCELERATION. AS I TURNED THE KEY, THE ENGINE WOULD NOT START AND IT MADE A CLICKING NOISE. I GOT OUT OF THE TRUCK AND OPENED THE HOOD TO CHECK THE MOTOR. I COULD NOT SEE ANYTHING, SO I WENT BACK INTO THE CAB AND STARTED THE TRUCK. IT STARTED, BUT WOULD NOT IDLE, THE RPM'S WENT TO OVER 6000 AND STAYED CONSTANT. I SHUT THE TRUCK OFF AGAIN AND WAITED A FEW SECONDS AND ON THE THIRD ATTEMPT, I SHUT THE TRUCK BACK OFF, BECAUSE THE RPM'S WOULD NOT IDLE AND WENT TO 6000 AND STAYED THERE. I ADJUSTED THE POWER ADJUSTABLE FOOT PEDALS AND WAITED A FEW SECONDS AND THE TRUCK STARTED AND IDLED AT NORMAL RPM'S. I LEFT THE TRUCK AT THE DEALERSHIP ON 7/31/13 FOR AN INSPECTION....UPDATED 09-26-13
