Ram 1500 4WD 8-cyl

  • 18,000 miles
Unintended acceleration while driving into garage. Engine RPM increased while my foot was on the brake. Nothing happened luckily I had the brake applied so I didn't hit anything. Also on the highway a couple of times the engine RPM increases by itself momentarily causing the truck to surge.
