surging 04 6.0 help

I think my icp sensor is bad but there is no oil in the plug is there a way I can test the senser is self? My truck surges once and awhile but when it does surge it surges several times then it may not surge for a few day I'm new to deisels and i'm stumped as to what it could be please help the truck has 97000 miles on it. My wife won't ride in the truck scared the surge will make me run into the person in front of me at the stop light. any help would be nice it may not be the icp sensor i don't know.

My 04 F-250 Super Duty Diesel does the same thing...and it also stalls out from time to time. It's been doing it for about 6 months now and I've had it back to the dealer at least 8 times in the past 2 months...they can't figure it out. I've contacted Ford customer service in Michigan and I'm working with them too. I also was stopped at a red light and almost rear ended a van in front of me because the 6.0 started to surge and pulled me for about 4 feet before I stood on the brakes and stopped the truck. Last Saturday, the engine stalled on me and I ended up jumping a curb and almost killing someone. At this point, it's a safety issue. The truck has been a lemon from day one when it was new. Ford has already given me an extended warranty at no cost, and then again extended the motor warranty out to 7 years 200,000 miles at no cost...but I've had it. I'll give them one more try, then they hear from my lawyer.

If you get yours fixed please let me know what the problem is because it's driving me nuts.

I have an '03 6.0 - way back when i got it - (used at 69,000 miles) it used to surge and a reflash took care of the problem. Then again - dealership did alot in a short timeframe - including replaced the ICP with a major oil leak from the sensor - but I'm pretty sure it was the reflash that stopped the surging.

My truck now has 196,900 miles on it and doing great. They really are great trucks once the problems are identified and rectified.

We had the same issue on our 05 F350, it seemed to be amplified when a fresh oil change was done. The ICP sensor was replaced, and it runs like a top now. After talking to our tech he said that the same symptoms were caused on another truck from a piece of o ring , it came from the high pressure oil manifold and rested against the bottom of the ICP sensor.

Best of luck....

I got taken out by a Hyundai...it's not funny...now I look like Stump, but taller

Well, I'm taking it back in to the dealership tonight AGAIN for the 9th time in about 2 months. I'm convinced they really don't know what the f--k they're doing. They give me a free loaner truck every time but it's really getting old at this point. What other recourse do I have if they just can't fix this truck??

Haven't tried a different dealer yet. I've wanted to, and even suggested that several times to the Ford customer service rep in Michigan who calls me almost every day to see if I'm happy with my truck (sarcasm) but they want me to take it back to the same dealer.
