Ranger tried to kill me today

Well I was going down a back road about 35mph today, and It started to bog out like it was out of fuel, so I pressed the gas pedal down some more and it got even worse. I released the gas pedal and it went to WOT instantly. I proceeded to slam the pedal to the floor and then the engine bogged out. Coasted to a stop and undid the battery cable, put it back on and everything was back to normal has anyone else had a reversed gas pedal before?

I did not have exactly the same issue but my truck while driving was fine but every now and then when i take my foot of the gas it would rev up and hold at high rpms, then i would press the gas pedal to the floor and let off. that made it stop. the throttle plate was getting stuck. try cleaning the throttle body out

Your ranger was just venting some pent up frustration lol.

Seriously, glad you are ok though. Hope that problem never arises again.
