2006 F250 6.0L - In reverse, acts as if accelerator not connected.
Well, there was another post here, which seemed similar but not exactly the same, in regards to this problem... and, no real ideas on it either...
2006 F-250 6.0L, TorqShift, SRW 4x4 MSOS. When shifting into reverse, usually upon startup, can floor the accelerator, and nothing happens. No RPM increase, nothing. Acts as if the accelerator isn't even connected.
Usually after a few seconds, it'll work. Another user here (ben92085) described a similar problem where he had to restart the truck. So far I haven't had to restart to get it to work again; and it does seem intermittent.
I do have a middle of the road OBD unit and no codes have shown up. Don't have anything more fancy than that (though from what I'm reading, I likely should.)
Got this truck a week ago (as-is, used, unfortunately; and wasn't having this issue) - so of course I'm concerned that I'm now making payments on a truck with the entire transmission about to go out. (Though the 'no response' makes me think, and hope, it's not the transmission, but something electrical or sensor related.)
I'm pretty new -- ok, REALLY new -- to diesels, but hoping I can learn here... Hope someone has maybe a direction to look in, or at least information.
Has anyone else had this problem, or know what it could be?
