96 PS Power Loss and then Recovers

1996 PS, Engine will not rev up , no throttle response, once warmed up will run down the road a quarter mile, and then i lose all throttle response, engine returns to idle. I checked the UV harnesses, and changed the Passenger side gasket, with the passenger side rear harness ( when i unplugged the harness, it was filled with oil), I checked the ICP sensor, and there was no oil coming up thru the sensor. Currently not getting a "check engine" light, but it had come on 1/2 a dozen times the day it started this behavior. When running down the road, all of a sudden i will get white smoke out of the tailpipe, and then the throttle will not respond. Truck comes to a stop, continues to idle, and within a couple minutes will respond again and then goes for another short distance and does the same thing.

I'm having a very similar problem with a 94.5 Powerstroke I just purchased. It will start just fine, as soon as I let out the clutch and hit the accelerator pedal it won't rev up and the check engine light comes on. I let off the pedal and the check engine light will go off. It just idles and won't rev up at all. I shut it off, restart and most of the time it will be fine. Today, It did it again, I shut it off, restarted it and took off. About half a mile down the road it lost power and went back to idle with the light on. I pulled over, restarted it numerous times before it finally quit acting up.

Just wondering if you have figured yours out yet?

without knowing what the codes are its hard to tell. a failed tps will do the same thing. you may want to start looking there.
