This problem relates to the electronic throttle controls. Problem could be in the sensor at the accelerator pedal, at the throttle body on the engine, or a wiring problem. The truck is driveable, but if the problem occurs again, power and top speed will be limited. It will not harm anything to drive like this, but you will obviously be slowed down.

Thanks Dave
The main thing I wanted to know is would I damage the engine if I drove it with this condition. I will drive it until I can get it in for service

No damage will occur.
