Heres a little something different a question for all of you,has anyone witnessed or been in the situation itself where a vehicle was having accelerator issues due to a Stuck throttle? Maybe the timing of the idle of the motor was off and not set correctly. This could of accured while driving or when starting up the vehicle and you were forced to cut the engine off and crank it up again until you got the timing correctly unstuck and normal idle status again? I have witnessed a female in the past having these issues have you?

A most interesting topic, I must say.   Reaching deep into the old memory banks, the only episode remotely close (but not quite the same) that I was able to recall was back in the mid-70s, say 1973 or 1974.   I remember coming home from a friend's house circa 2AM one Sunday morning and having to stop behind a long line of cars waiting at a red traffic light.   From my car, I could see the light eventually turning green but nobody moving.   Getting pissed-off and impatient, I put the stick in neutral, pulled the park brake on, and jumped out of my car (not the smartest idea at that time and neighborhood I admit), running 5-6 cars up the line to see what the holdup was about, I came to a green 1968 Plymouth Satellite 2-door with a young (early 20s) lady behind the wheel.  She rolled her window down, and I asked what was the matter.  She said that something was wrong with the gas pedal and her car could only idle and won't rev up no matter how hard she floored the gas pedal.   I could hear the car chugging in a very laboring way so I told her to floor it.  She did and sure enough the sound did not change.   Since the line of cars was now about two dozen deep, and it was very late (or early), and I was tired and just wanted to get some sleep, I did not ask her if the car had stalled prior or what was the story before I got on the scene.  I just told her to floor the pedal and hold her foot tight to the floor with as much pressure as she could put on it and stay on it until I tell her to let up.    So she did and after a period of time (I don't recall how long) the motor did start to rev up and slowly clear out.   After she got off the pedal she thanked me and threw the column shift into "D" and roared off.

 Interesting story seemed like more of a lack of power issue alternator electrical thing. In this situation I witnessed the same with an older Greyhound bus back in high school back in 2002. It was a Friday after school and I decided to take the Greyhound to go visit my relatives for the weekend, as we were just a mile away from our destination our bus driver was radioed in by another driver who was behind us some ways back. The driver was a female and said her bus was losing power little by little and she wanted our driver to wait for her and follow her off the freeway offramp. She finally caught up to our bus and neatly only doing 25 mph holding traffic up behind her,we then began following her bus as we proceeded to exit the freeway off ramp to where the bus terminal was located just a block away. The light at the intersection was red for about 20 sec as it turned green she tried to proceed making the right turn as the bus naerly moved about 15 mph traffic was building up behind us in slow motion she managed to get the bus turned into the bus terminal parking lot where she just parked it at the entrance where we then passed her up to park our bus at the loading drop off zone. Her passengers were very agravated and we're late to their destinations by about an hour than normal on time schedule.
