Hello, let me review your request. Please stand by.
Does any malfunction indicator come on the instrument cluster when the issue occurs?
DOes ot happen more when engine is cold, warmed up or just anytime?
The symptom you are experiencing with gas pedal and no malfunction indicators on these vehicles usually points towards a failing throttle motor which is part of the electronuic throttle body.
Its the same on both years. Complete throttle body assembly will need to be replaced and idle relearn procedure will need to be performed afterwards.
Do you have any other questions?
Failing crank sensor can also cause a similar symptom but usually it will give the check engine light. Alsop make sure all the fluid are topped off and it is is not running hot when it dies.

Hello, just checking if you have any other questions?
It is held by two bolts, probably jammed inside as it has not been removed in a long time. I have attached the manufacture provided procedure to replace the starter.
Did you replace the throttle body?
Which sensor did you replace?
Did you get the codes read for the check engine light?
The Throttle body can give you the issue you are experiencing. The TCM gets reference from the thorttle body. If codes are present in the system, i will recomment to get it scanned to be certain of the issue.
Keep me posted.
Did you disconnect the battery when replacing the crank sensor?
There is a possibility the check engine lights codes cleared when you disconnected the battery. In my experience he symptoms you are experiencing do pont towards the throttlr bode failing but will need to wait for codes to come back to confirm.
