shifting twice?

when driving around 30 35 mph my trans will shift into over drive and run at 1000rpms, it basically skips 3rd gear and into 4. also the first inch of the depression of the peddle gives me nothing then when pressed slightly more jumps to 1000rpms i have no control to drive between idle and 1000. i have heard it could be many things but before i buy a handful of sensor and relays i thought i would ask.

Does that weird go-pedal behavior happen even when not in gear? If so, it could be "dead pedal", caused by the idle switch on the pedal not responding when it should. Do a search here and on those, er, other sites for "dead pedal" for more info, but in a nutshell, the switch works like the one in the fridge door; it opens (or is it closes? whichever...) when you push the pedal off the idle position. Sometimes it gets out of adjustment, and doesn't do what it should until you've pressed the pedal quite a distance. The fix is to bend the little tang that the switch is on so that it responds more readily. Be careful not to over-adjust it, 'cuz if you overshoot, you don't get any idle. But that's an oversimplification; like I said, search is your friend.

Dunno if this will also take care of your shifting problem, but it might. Be worth looking into first.

apparently the tps on my truck is the one from the 460. The pedal assembly is perfectly out of alignment. with no pressure on the pedal the tps is already rotated a little and the idle position switch is also off making for a big jump in rpm when the idle switch clicks off. if i were to buy a new pedal assembly does it come with Tps and idle position switch or not?

The pedal assembly SHOULD have the position sensor and idle switch built-in. That's really all that the pedal is on our trucks. Remember, there's no actual throttle, so the "throttle" position sensor is really just the pedal position sensor. So the whole point of replacing the pedal is to get the new sensor / switch. A new one is crazy spendy; start checking around here and on the "nation" for someone selling one. Or maybe you'll find one on eBay.
