Had a stuck throttle today when i stepped into it. Almost went throught the intersection. Shut car down immediately. Checked under the hood linkage was free and clear. Went out tested it later happened again only when i stomped on it and it got past 3500 rpm. This time though it disengeged as soon as i touched the brake. Just installed bama chip programer. Possible problem with the cruise control and throttle input?
Any suggestions will be contacting Bama Chips as well.

Hey man, i live in Vancouver too. I go to UBC. Anywasy ford sent out a recall, i got one for my mounty, that is some climates especially cold ones, the throttle body cable will stick. My mountys cable stuck when a semi pulled in front of me i had to accelrate and it let loose again. I cant recall the exact scenario on what would happen but take it to a ford dealer and have them adress tha issue. Did this happen up north in squamish or whistler or here in vancouver?

Happens to me only in the winter. Happens all the time, independent of the RPMs. I always wondered if I was the only one or not.....
Again, only happens in the winter, once temps get 35 and below. Never happens in the summer.
