I AM GLAD THAT WE WERE NOT IN A SITUATION THAT WE COULD HAVE GOTTEN KILLED BECAUSE OF THE THROTTLE PROBLEM. THE FIRST TIME WE WERE DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD AT 45 MPH SUDDENLY THE ACCELERATOR WOULD NOT RESPOND, THE ENGINE WAS STILL RUNNING AT A ROUGH IDLE. WE HAD TO COAST TO THE SHOULDER. STOPPED TURNED OFF THE TRUCK, IT WAS ABLE TO RESTART AND THE ACCELERATOR WAS WORKING AGAIN. WE DROVE TO THE LOCAL FORD DEALER. AT THE FORD DEALER THEY COULD NOT IDENTIFY THE PROBLEM. THE SECOND TIME THIS HAPPENED WAS WHEN WE WERE GOING 55 MPH. COASTED TO SHOULDER OF THE ROAD AND I WAS ABLE TO RESTART THE TRUCK AND DROVE VERY CAREFULLY TO THE FORD DEALER. THIS TIME THEY WERE ABLE TO GET A CODE READING OF THE PROBLEM. THE CODE CALLED FOR A RECALIBRATION. THIS WAS DONE. DROVE THE TRUCK HOME THINKING THAT IT WAS REPAIRED. THE THIRD TIME THIS HAPPENED WAS ON THE INTERSTATE TRAVELING 75MPH. LUCKILY WE WERE IN THE RIGHT LANE AND WAS ABLE TO COAST TO THE SHOULDER. REPEATED SAME PROCEDURE AS ABOVE. RETURNED TO THE FORD DEALER. THIS TIME THEY READ THE CODE(P2112) AND REPLACED THE THROTTLE BODY AND MOTOR ASSEMBLY. THIS PROBLEM WITH THE THROTTLE COULD HAVE VERY EASILY CAUSED A DEADLY CRASH. I FEEL THAT MY WIFE AND ARE VERY LUCKY AS WE COULD HAVE BEEN IN A VERY SERIOUS ACCIDENT.
