The lack of replies in the 911 column amaze me sometimes. I wonder why I even ask for help here instead of just going straight to the 94-97 section.

Do you have any other symptoms you can give? What speed were you in, what gear, how much throttle? Do you have any gauges measuring oil pressure? fuel pressure? etc?

For now I'm gonna guess IPR (injection pressure regulator) but your description was kind of vague. It could me plenty other things. I had my IPR done last november. Sometimes my idle would jump up or down a bit. It gradually got worse, then when in gear and acclerating it felt like a loss of power for me and it was a lurch making me rock a bit in my seat.

Do you got a scanner by any chance that can monitor live data? I just picked up an Aeroforce Interceptor. Check it out!

By 94 are you a 94.5 with the Direct Injection 7.3 powerstroke, or an Early 94 with the IDI 7.3 turbo? big difference and we can't help without knowing, same displacement, completely different engines.

If it's a powerstroke, the throttle is electronic and there is a sensor on it called the Idle verification sensor, or something like that and it causes the truck to drop back to idle. Mine would do this from time to time until I replaced the whole pedal assembly. It was completely random, would happen once a week or 5 times a day. Usualy I would shift and then when I would get back on it, nothing happened. Let off and try again it and it would be normal.
