Dead pedal only after warm engine and under hard acceleration
Hey everyone, Read and searched, but I still cannot find a solid solution or an idea to what my problem is.
I have a 2003 6.0L bone stock its a 6 speed. Picked the truck up last week.
So far it has been pretty good.. Head gaskets are good, EGR system seems to be working fine. It has started in the -55 Celcius weather we have had here and I always let it warm for 20 minutes.
The problem I noticed was during the warmer weather (-10C) once the truck has reached operating temperature, If I would push on the accelerator in fourth or fifth gear on any slight grade doing about 80 km/h the truck would just buck out and die on me.
I would shift down to 3rd, then 2nd and it will eventually stall. I would turn off the truck and then after 2 minutes it will start back up and run fine.
My Degas bottle is leaking coolant slightly and it is not overfilled (at min mark cold).
I think i have narrowed it down to either my EGR valve will get stuck open, when the truck dies out I hear almost a fluttering noise. OR my ICP sensor.
I haven't been able to take my EGR valve out to clean it... the ****sucker is in there good.
If anyone has any ideas to help me out I would appreciate it.
I am planning to do a EGR delete and eventually more work when money comes available.
