Please help with strange problem!

A friend with a '87 420SEL w/170 kmi, has had two of the same
occurances in two days.

Says car is acting fine. Stops at a streetlight/stopsign etc., no problems. When he presses down on the accelerator the car just
idles. Moves along at idle.

Thought it might be tranny at first, but says the tach is at steady idle, not revving up with accel pressure.

After a minute or two it is back to normal.

Any ideas?

I tried the search, but this seems way out of the norm.

Thanks in advance.

'96 Ford Brono XLT
'94 Mercury Villager

'40 Packard 110 4DSD
