I work for security at a nuclear plant. We have two 2004 Ford, f250 pickups. I and several other people have had a problem with the brake pedal and accelerator pedal. We wear military style boots, if you move your foot from the accelerator to the brake and still have your foot partially over the accelerator your shoe will come in contact with the accelerator pedal before the brake pedal is depressed far enough to apply the brake. Myself and several other people have had a near miss because of the vehicle lunging forward before the brake engages.

Engine shuts-off while driving. On three separate instances, engine shut-off for 1~2 seconds while driving, then restarted. On another occasion, engine continued running, but lost all accelration ability. Regardless of how hard accelarator was depressed, truck would not accelerate.
The brake pedal and the gas pedal are too close, and gas pedal is 1/2 inch lower. When stepping on the brake pedal consumer can hit the gas pedal at the same time. Dealer states no modification because of design specifications. This problem would become worse in the winter when the consumer wears boots.
Ford superduty 250 truck with 7. 3 engine has no accelerator pedal response. Pedal assembly has been replaced twice within less than 1200 miles. This has happened as we were trying to go across busy intersection and in heavy traffic. The experience is quite unsettling to driver plus occupants.

On December 19, 2002 at 3:30 pm, with the engine warmed up and the transmission indicating normal temperature, after having driven for 1 hour-problem free, I was coming to a stop sign in my Ford F-250 diesel crew cab truck at the intersection of plumas and moana lane, in reno, nevada. As I tried to slow down, it became very clear that the engine was still engaged to the transmission because as I slowed, the diesel engine began to lug down and jolt the truck violently. The engine was accelerating, but my foot was off the accelerator and on the brake. To stop this dangerous situation, I slipped the transmission indicator into n for neutral and that stopped the acceleration thereby preventing a front-end collision and after a few moments the engine stopped racing. After a minute of idling, the truck was placed back in d for drive, and the truck drove normally. I took the Ford F-250 truck to jones-west Ford of reno, nevada to have the problem looked at. They diagnosed the problem as the electric gas pedal, but because they could not replicate the problem, the service manager, a bud, refused to have the electric gas-pedal replaced under warranty. I later learned from my service advisor at Ford that this was done despite having received like consumer complaints from Ford F-250 series truck owners concerning the electric gas-pedals. Ts.

On December 13, 2002, at 5:00 pm, in a snowstorm in reno, nevada, Ford F-250 diesel crew cab was stopped at a red light; temperature was 35 degrees, truck was idling normally; the engine was warmed up and the transmission indicated normal temperature. Upon receiving a green light, I attempted to accelerate but the diesel engine would not respond to commands from the accelerator-pedal. After repeated, pumping the accelerator I was able to get some acceleration from the engine to clear the intersection; 20 seconds later, the accelerator responded normally. I took it to the Ford dealer but because the intermittent failure could not be duplicated, the Ford dealership would not replace the electric gas-pedal despite having changed 5 in the last few months in similar f250 trucks. Mileage of truck 11,700 miles. Total time since purchased 7 months.
