engine surge at fixed throtttle, engine light

I have a 99 F250 PSD with a 6 speed manual trans with 120K miles.

It's my first Diesel and I have had it about 2 years.

Its a great truck, and I have had little trouble with it but recently developed an intermittant acceleration (surge) at fixed throttle during normal driving, followed occationally by a "service engine soon" light. Following the surge, all would be normal again and the warning light would then go out.

I got the recall notices in the mail about when this first occured and had the cam sensor and cruise control pressure sensor replaced last week under the recalls.

I had hoped that this would resolve the issue but no such luck...

I searched the forum and have not found any threads that adress this specifically.

So, is there a way the read the fault code without a reader like my previous truck (dakota). If not, can I use a standard OBDII reader to read the fault code or do I need to take it back to the dealer?

Any ideas on what the problem could be?

Thanks much.

sometimes the ICP (injection control prressure) sensor can cause erratic stugff like that, as can the IPR (injection pressure regulator). need to get those codes, a reg. OBD II won't work, either take it to a dealer or mechanic, or look up AE software AutoEnginuity® - OBD2 Scan Tool - Professional PC and PDA Diagnostics get those codes and post em up so we know where to start pointing ya
