    i own a 2008 ford f-150 xlt supercrew id#1ftpw14578fb09248/ i have been having acceleration problems.once sitting at an intersection luckily i was the first one at the light this vehicle just started racing and took off on me luckily my light just turned green i put both feet on the brakes and it did't do a thing as the tac was buried and engine reving as fast as it would go by then i was in the middle of the intersection and still out of control i put the truck into neutrul the truck stopped but the engine was racing so fast i thought it was going to blow up i then put it in park and shut the truck off, i had my two boys 14 and 16 with me to witness this and we were all scared to death. I finally started the truck back up reluctantly but i was in the middle of the intersection and it was fine i pulled over into a shopping center trying to calm down and finally drove home with no other problems that day. Since this was a weekend the ford dealership was closed so on monday morning i went to them they looked in their comuter found no recals and told me if i put it on the computer it would cost me 60 dollars.1 year later this same thing happened to me this truck took off on me like a rocket engine racing this time i was by myself on way to work i kept it on the road as long as i could then shot off into a field went approx.1/4 mile taking out stumps and trees in approx 8in.of snow then went airborne back over the road landing into a ditch up against two trees. I was semi conscious when i finally landed and stopped but all i could hear was this trucks engine racing as fast as it could go and i could see steam coming out of the front it scared me so i had the sense to put the truck in park and shut it off. Been doing some research same company that makes throttle/sensors for toyota also makes them for ford. I truly believe this problem needs to be adressed asap. I'm lucky i'm still alive the next person might not be over this obvious throttle/sensor
