03' Ford Ranger making weird noise

03' Ford Ranger - YouTube

Whenever I step on the gas pedal, the RPM doesn't increase until I take my foot off the pedal. The whole truck shakes when I do this. What's wrong with it?

I hasn't been driven for a couple of years. It has about 100,000 miles in it.

If there's any questions you need answered, please ask. I'll reply as soon as I can.

Try resetting the PCM by pulling the battery cable for a half hour or so it may just need to relearn throttle positions.
