2000 f250 7.3 problems

My F250 lost power while my wife was driving it this morning. She said she made it to work fine (about 25 miles), but when she left to go to the dentist, it didn't have any power in Drive. She said it was fine in reverse? It did start working periodically, but she finally got stranded in a parking lot. When I got there I started it and it started and idled fine, but when I first stepped on the gas pedal, there was nothing there. I did it again and it revved up then. I had to leave town, so it's sitting in the parking lot until I get back tomorrow. Any suggestions? Oh, the dash panel isn't working either, but I think that is just a fuse.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!!!

If I am understanding you correctly, you can still get the truck to rev but have no forward motion. Sounds like the transmission is out. Get the fuse replaced for your cluster and see if the OD light is blinking.

That's the thing, I thought it might be the transmission, but it does work part of the time. The tranny only has 125,000 on it. I guess that doesn't mean much, but I would think that if it was the tranny, it would be more consistent on how it acts. When I tried to rev the motor, the trans. was in park at the time. That's when it was "dead" the first time I stepped on the accelerator, the second time it revved up.

I'm definitely no mechanic and don't pretend to be on tv either. But it just doesn't make sense how's it acting.

I think you need to be more descriptive. Is it slipping in drive? I mean when it is in drive if you push the "accelerator" pedal down it just revs and goes nowhere. Is it in drive when you rev the engine? If you were in drive and the engine sped up and the truck didn't move then there is something driveline related. If you were in park and the truck was intermittent then it could be many other things such as a APS sensor which attaches to the accelerator pedal and reads the position of the pedal itself. These trucks are drive by wire and there is no accelerator cable. Please post more information so I can try to help.

Sorry for the crude descriptions, I was going off what my wife described to me as she was driving it at the time.

As crazy as it sounds, when I got back into town I was able to go check things out. All it ended up being was a blown fuse! I've had that fuse blow before and the instrument panel stopped working. But I've always stopped right away and changed the fuse, so I never experienced the loss of power. My wife tried driving it that way and that's when she started noticing all the issues.

I hope this can help someone else, and I appreciate all the input! Thanks!
