I have a 2001 GMC 3500 that jumps to full throttle as soon

Customer Question

hi I'm Rob and I have a 2001 GMC 3500 that jumps to full throttle as soon as I start it up. Any thoughts?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: engine starts and goes right to full throttle and black smoke pours from the exhaust. it will shut down with the key. The PMD has been replaced previously and the lift pump is working.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Chevy Mechanics generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
