HELP!! Accelerator pedal sensor issues
I am new to the site but was told this is a good place for off the wall issues.
I bought a 02 F350 Lariat LE with the 7.3l. After spending over $3k trying to resolve this issue, I have not succeeded.
After the engine is warm and things are running smooth, the pedal goes dead. Generally after I have got on it a little to climb a hill or pass someone. Everything else still works/ stays running. The check engine light only comes on after the pedal is depressed and goes out after it is released. I have taken it to the local dealer and they say it I'd the accelerator pedal sensor. Which I have replace and no success. After it sets for about an your or so (after everything cools down) the pedal starts working again.
I bought the legendary 7.3l for its reliability, and so far I love it. But I am using the truck go pull my horse trailer and cannot afford to have it cut out on me with livestock in the trailer.
Any input is welcome. Thank you all for your assistance.
