7.3 Motor Surge
Cant find any of my old post or threads on this, so starting a new one, and telling you my fix.
My motor was having extreme surge problems at low RPM,s under no load, when loaded I didnt really notice it that much, could be because I had more pedel pushed down not sure, but was reading some other threads on this issue and found one and tried another fix.
Just to let you know this problem went away when cruise control was on.
The fix...........I unplugged both connecters at my pedal and cleaned all of the connections, I used WD-40 but a contact cleaner or something i think would work as well. then I plugged and unplugged the connectors a few times to make sure the pins where making contact and any tarnish that might have been on there was rubbed away.
I reconnected them with some electrical grease and went for a drive, the problem was gone, this was about 6 months ago, and the problem has not returned.
Just so you know this was my idea or fix, someone else had posted it, and I thank them for that, I just hope that helps some of you out there that has had the same problem.
