dead peddle

hi i've got a 97 f350 that for 99% of the time runs perfect.but sometimes exspesuialy going up a hill or small incline the truck acts like there's no feedback from the peddle,it will slow down and if you floor it the rpms will stay the same or sometimes go up but it does'nt pickup any speed until it gets to flat ground. it's verry anoying any help will be appreciated.

Does the engine go back to idle or just stay where it is when this happens?

If it stays where it is, TPS

If it drops back to idle ( will only happen with the torque convertor unlocked) then it's the IVS. It has a metal contact you can see if you look in the pedal. I cleaned the crap out of mine and it's been good for over a year.

I'm not sure if these sensor's can be bought separately, I think TPS can. If not, go to a u pull and hope they don't know its a drive by wire system for the whole pedal and only charge you 10$
