WIDE OPEN THROTTLE Scarry happening for sure.hit the Jakes jumped on brakes only reaction was LOTS of black smoke, turned the key off ,last rpm I saw was above 2500
Engine did shut down with key ! Lucky ! for us I let it coast down to 25 before applying brake again and then muscled it to side. A trucker protected my dear until we got off road...thanks whoever you are.
After getting stopped and calmed down I opened hatch thinking throttle cylinder busted

Quick thinking Ed! Hopefully no harm done other than nerves. Wow, this is turning into an adventurous trip for y'all!

Wow. Glad you came out of that one unscathed Ed. I would never have thought that plate could break like that.

There are still a bunch of good hearted, intelligent truckers out there. Glad you had one on your dear

I had an AC compressor lock up once in my car, the belt melted and put out a ton of smoke. I pulled over and a trucker was right behind me and came running with a fire extinguisher.
