Driving back to HQ with a quickness until the gas pedal ‘sticks’ when she puts it in neutral to rev it up. Thinking it’ll go away when she puts it back in drive, she changes gears but the rpms aren’t coming down and the pedal is still stuck. I get her to put it back in neutral and to give the pedal a quick romp and that clears it up. In good time too because she has to quickly come to a stop at a stop sign…which the car stalls out on her. She cranks it for a while there, unable to get the car started.
Maybe the sticky pedal has something to do with it?
After some tries she manages to fire the engine again and makes it to HQ without further incident.
