sticking accelerator on 2004 Ford Explorer Sport Trac

has happened 3 times in the last 8 months..twice was an almost disaster..when slowing for a stop...the engine rev's up and severe pressure is needed on the brakes...causing the tires to spin... and putting the truck in park made the engine settle down . We have removed the floor mat to make sure it was not hindering the foot feed...but it has happened again...

Intake air throttle plate could be dirty and needs cleaning. This is not a exspensive service and you should get your car checked asap.
