I HAVE A 2002 FORD TAURUS SEDAN, AND WHILE DRIVING ABOUT A MONTH AGO I PUSHED GAS PEDAL TO ACCELERATE, THE THROTTLES BECAME STUCK CAUSING THE CARS ENGINE TO SPEED UP TO 80 MPH IN A 30 MPH SPEED ZONE. I HAD TO APPLY AS MUCH PRESSURE TO THE BREAKS AS I COULD TO CONTROL THE CAR, AND FINALLY I WAS ABLE TO PULL INTO A GAS STATION, WITH THE ENGINE STILL RACING, PUT THE CAR INTO PARK AND TURN OFF THE CAR. I WAS SO AFRAID I JUST SET IN THE CAR FOR ABOUT 10 MINUTES TO COLLECT MY THOUGHTS. I OPEN THE HOOD TO SEE IF ANYTHING HAD BROKEN OR CAME APART BUT COULD NOT FIND ANY UNUSUAL. I TURN THE CAR BACK ON, THE ENGINE WAS STILL RACING, I LOOKED FOR THE ACCELERATOR CABLE AND FOUND IT. HOWEVER, I NOTICE THAT THE SMALL PLASTIC O-RING ON THE CABLE USED AS A STOP WAS CAUGHT ON THE CORNER OF THE AIR INTAKE HOUSING. I PULLED BACK ON THE CABLE RELEASING IT. WHEN I LET GO OF THE CABLE IT WENT BACK TO ITS NORMAL POSITION, THE ENGINE STOPPED RACING AND SLOWED TO A NORMAL IDLE. I CREPT BACK HOME WERE THE CAR SET FOR TWO WEEKS BEFORE I HAD THE NERVES TO DRIVE IT AGAIN. IT HAPPEN AGAIN ON 3/14/12 WHEN I PUSHED THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL TO PASS A TRUCK ON I-70W IN COLUMBUS, OH.
