Bogging out

Yesterday I was driving to a job site about mid day and my truck lost pretty much all power. Engine sounded like it was bogging out and my engine light came on. I let go of the gas and it a couple seconds later it went back to normal and the light went off. It did it again about 5 minutes later and then ran fine for the rest of the day. It did it again once this morning and then ran fine again. The engine light doesnt stay on so I can't run any codes. Anybody come across this problem before? I have a 97' 250, 4x4, automatic, ECLB.

engine light does not have to be on to read a code. codes are stored so you can retrieve it. sounds like a hpop pump issue

If letting go of the pedal and pushing it again makes it go away, the idle switch is a prime suspect. Does your scanner also read live data? If so, you could set it up to read the state of the switch, and just drive it that way for a while. Then next time "it happens", keep your foot ON the go-pedal, and see if the PCM still says the switch is closed.
