Component Description: Vehicle Speed Control
Manufacturer Involved in This Recall: Ford Motor Company
Manufacturer Responsible for This Recall: Ford Motor Company
Report Received Date: September 23, 1977
Summary: Some of the involved vehicles may have defective carburetors in which, under certain circumstances, the secondary throttle plates may stick open.
Consequence: In the event of throttle sticking, the vehicle may continue to accelerate after the accelerator pedal is released. Continuous acceleration could occur without warning and lead to a loss of vehicle control and an accident. Note: the likelihood of the condition occurring can be reduced by avoiding full or nearly full depressions of the accelerator pedal as during high acceleration or full power operations.
Remedy: Dealer will inspect and, if necessary, replace the carburetor at no charge to owner.

Vehicle description: passenger vehicles and light trucks equipped with 460 cid engines.
