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?
