Default 2005 Mustang GT throttle problem

I'm new and need some help, please.Recently I lost all poweron the freeway while passing traffic.Trouble light came on. Driftedto shoulder in neutral, motor was still idling. Pressed gas, butno response. Turnedignitionoff and on, then everything seemed OK. Less than 2 miles later, throttle stuck wide open! Put car in neutral and stopped, but engine isgoing like crazy! Pressed gas, but no change in engine sound. Gas pedal was not stuck on mat and did not feel soft. In a minute engine went back down on its own. Tookcar to the dealer and they said it was a throttle position sensor and repaired it. Dealer saidwhen trouble light came on, the car's computer "threw a code". This same problem (no throttle, then throttle very stuck) happened four more times after the repair, but with no trouble light,andthe car did not "throw a code".I cannot get this repaired under warranty and I am too afraid to drive the car. I leave it at the dealer every week forservice techniciansto drive the car around tryingto duplicate this problem, but no luck. It's been 3 weeks! Help![:@]

Welcome to the forums. You may want to repost in the 2005-07 section. We have heard of this before and its posted there. Of course, you can try using the search tool above, but the dang thing is not working properly...at least not for me.
