Question about 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Wow! Glad you both came out of it unhurt.
What I think happened is that one or more of you engine mounts failed. When you punch the gas pedal on a car with a failed engine mount. The engine will twist in the opposite direction of the torque being created in the drive train. When you punch it hard, while passing, the engine will twist enough to pinch the gas pedal linkage against the chassis wall, locking down. DON'T DRIVE IT, EVEN IF SLOWLY. GET IT TOWED. Installing mounts is not a very difficult job, so you can, if you want, do it yourself. Hope the rest of your New Year has no more excitement and adventure that you don't want.
Happy New Year,
