my wife bought an 02 EB 5.4 in feb, and the second day she had it, the throttle stuck. She was going about 50mph, and couldnt pop it in neutral, so she destroyed teh front brakes getting it stopped. I was in afghanistan when it happened so i dont know the "real" story of what happened. But with all the TSBs on that problem, seems Ford could have done something about it, considering what toyota had to go thru.
The truck is currently in transit to here in germany, and once it gets here I'll be able to check out the TB to see if that was infact the problem.
The engine turns off even while in drive, I just tried it this morning.
