Top of throttle pedal, no response

I have had an intermittent problem with my 06 f-350 6.0 lately. When I gently press on the accelerator pedal the first inch or so of the stroke of the pedal does nothing. Then after that it's like it catches up and accelerates like it should. But there is not a just off of idle pedal it's either idle or 1200 rpm or so. It has also died right after a start then started the second time with no problem. This seems to be getting progressively worse and worse. I have changed the fuel filters and it didn't help.

Any help would be appreciated

06 F-350 6.0L 4x4 stolen recovery 17k mi. bought at auction on 7-15-07 with stripped interior. Replaced interior with 03 F-250 parts and some new dealer parts. Registered and started driving 8-22-07. All stock exept for a 1.5" levling kit in the front.

I know on the Harley trucks the pedal is Fly by Wire. My buddies truck did the same thing yours is doing and it turned out that the rheostat that matches what the pedal is doing was sticking. It was an easy fix but Ford had to do it.

Hope that helps...

It is a Harley truck or used to be anyway. All the emblems are gone and the intieror was stripped. But if what you say is true it will have the fly by wire pedal. Do you know what they replaced? Why did the dealer have to do it? I would think that the rheostat in the pedal would be bad but I'm just guessing.

all the trucks are " drive by wire" you have a throttle position sensor ( tps sensor ) in the pedal that sends the position of the pedal to the computer, which in turn schedules and delivers fuel requirements based on pedal location. sounds like you have a bad tps sensor, that should be looked at and replaced.
