Accelerator pedal position sensor

Hey Marty if your tapped in, maybe you have knowledge on this issue. I notice it takes alot of travel on my accelerator to get my truck to respond. Dads truck is differant. You touch his pedal and its a raped ape. I dont know if this is adjustable or not but what do I need to look at as far as diagnostics to determine where my APPS is set and or if it needs to be replaced. 2000 F350 230K 7.3, Thanks for your advice.

Ive noticed theres not alot of responses most of the time on this forum. Im trying to dig up a link that talks about your exact issue. IIRC its just a metal tab that makes contact to complete the circuit so to speak that you can bend to make contact sooner. I'll get back with ya soon as I refill the blinker fluid and find my muffler bearing.

Had to dig through all the bearings but here it is...
Accelerator Adjustment
In some cases, the accelerator sensor doesn't respond as it should. You may notice it clicking or hesitating when you push on it. The accelerator on the Power Stroke is completely electronic, there is no throttle cable. This sensor can be adjusted for better throttle response. Go easy though, if you adjust it too far, you may have a problem with the engine resetting to idle. There is no adjustment on the switch. I had to bend the tab on the accelerator that depresses the switch until I was satisfied. WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!! It's nice to have throttle control.
