PCM- engine begins to chug and stall at a stop/idle until engine completely shuts off. Must place in park, turn off ignition and restart ignition/car; driving safety hazard to have car shutting down in bumper to bumper traffic, at every stop sign, every stop light, and every time of idling.

On Oct 27, 2014 I was traveling out of town onto our local highway. As I accelerated from 40 mph to the 65 mph speed limit the gas pedal continued to rapidly depress to the floor sending me up to 80 mph until I depressed the clutch. At that point the engine RPM skyrocketed, so I turned off the car, applied the brakes and pulled off to the side of the road. It was a frightening experience! I thought it was just caused by the gas pedal getting stuck under my new floor mat, but then happened 2 more times in the past 6 months, so I knew it was a mechanical problem. Since then I have researched on the internet and found lots of information and blogs from other Mustang owners experiencing the same problem and plan to make an appointment immediately with my local Ford dealership. Question: Why doesn't Ford do a major recall before someone gets killed?
