truck dies then comes back to life
Hi, new to this forum.
I have searched but cant find the exact same problem.
truck is a 1999 f350 with 6 speed manual 2 wheel drive and while driving after a shift change press the pedal to accelerate there will be no response, truck seem to die, well go to idle still have steering and brakes but no throttle response the tack still registers the rpm, no warning lights come on, if i let off the pedal for a second and push it back down everything is alright again.
has done this about 5 times in the last 2 weeks.
I have had the CPS replaced one week ago and have checked the ICP and it does have oil in it but the truck does not have a rough idle or any surging and starts very well, oil is full and have changed the fuel filter and air filter.
One other thing it does (may be applicable) when i use the cruise it will kick off by itself, just like the clutch or break were pressed, hit the resume button and it will go on again but kick off whenever it feels like it.
any help at all would be great, I dont have a scanner or access to one right now.
