 While driving 2005 dodge ram 1500 4x4,i went to pass a slower moving vehicle,the truck went into passing gear, and the accelerator stuck all the way to the floor. i tried to lift it with my foot and only the plastic portion of the pedal came up, the truck was still going at full foot pedal. i looked at speedometer and was going over 100 + miles and hour, the only thing i could think to do was to put it in neutral, but at that rpm the motor would surely blow. i stood on the brakes, until i was slowing a bit and then put in neutral,at which time the motor was free revving at redline. i was able to stop, all the while the motor was red lining, and then shut the key off. thank goodness the brakes held, i don't know how much longer they would have though , there was smoke rolling off the entire front end of the truck. i notified the dealer, who recommended that i call roadside assistance and have it towed in ,he gave me the number , and was sorry for this happening, and unfortunately he had no porter to come and pick me up, could i stay with the truck until tow truck arrived. i called the tow truck assistance and waited for them to arrive , the man informed me that when the key is shut off, it resets itself, he started the truck and drove it up on the flat bed. i arrived at the dealership and they are going to look at it sometime. last week my 17 year old daughter was driving the same vehicle and had a minor incident while pulling into a parking lot, witnesses stated that the truck was going fast. last week i like any mother thought it was her driving skills,after today , it's really made me think about her incident. and what would have happened if it was her driving? i saw my life pass by me today literally. i don't want to drive it again. what should i do. i have only had this truck 10 months!!!!!!!!!! *nm
 Dt: vehicle runs fine when it's cold. but when it's warm it runs differently. it fuels itself. when coasting above 25 mph it will hold 1500 rpms, and when not having foot on the gas it has no engine braking, it will actually speed up if going down hill. vehicle was taken to 3 different dealers 4 times, and they refused to do anything. *ak
