Re: 200tqa: just had unintended acceleration

Check your cruise control linkage next to the intake/valve cover.  Mine
jumped out of the bushing and got wedged at 3/4 throttle.  Pulling up on
the pedal did nothing, turning key off and removing the linkage rod fixed. 
The rod is still in the tool box btw, as I don't like being burned twice.
