hi

my brother came to pick his 08 3l ute up from mine last night and when he was starting it up after the standard glow he hit the key and it just reved straight out past 3000rpm , turned it off and went through the same procedure and it keeps doing it , any thoughts ?
it has been steadily raining here for the whole day yesterday so maybe some thing got wet? ,I had picked it up from the auto sparkies for getting lights and shiz fitted the day before.
he's had it for 2 years and this has never happened


cheers Damien

Hmmm so has had electrical work done just the other day? Possible there is a short somewhere? (Thinking electrical rather than mechanical issue)

Perhaps try disconnecting the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS)... Should be up above the drivers side kick panel, can trace where the accelerator pedal goes to find it. Could be a problem where it thinks the TPS is at 100%.
