Gas pedal not working waited then it worked again What causes this? While driving on the highway I pushed the gas pedal and the 1999 Nissan van barely moved forward going only 12 mph the speed doe meter. Works intermittently and was not working at the time. So I pulled over and stopped the and waited for about 15 minutes then started the van and stepped on the gas and luckily we made it all the way home about 50 miles going about 70 mph what caused this and what needs to be done to fix it?
