okay so i was driving to work today on the freeway!! i was going like 80 mph and i punched it to pass a car and all of the sudden my throttle would not respond i was pressing on the gas but it did not accelerate at all it like the engine shut off!!! so i pulled over and came to a complete stop and i heard my engine running so it did not shut off and i pushed the pedal and it responded!!!! lol!! this has happened to me twice already and it has all happened doing the same thing!! my engine runs good and idles good and i scanned it and everything seems fine!! i am thinking that it could be my torque converter!! could the torque converter cause this!! i think its the torque converter because my car will not accelerate untill the auto tranny goes back into first!!
