My 96 f350 went wide open throttle

First off I tried a search and did not come up with much on this. I was leaving a light and stepped on the acc pedal. The truck lurched and jumped and missed a couple of times and then took off like a bat out of hell. I let off the pedal when it started to fish tail and I was only a quarter down on the throttle. I finally had to turn it off to get the throttle to drop to normal.

Sounds like a possible TPS problem. Do you have any way to check for codes?

It can store codes with no light.

I was talking to a Ford diesel mech and he was saying to maybe change the oil. Dirty oil could be messing up the injection pump. ???? Does that make since? I have not pulled codes as of yet.

He's full of it. For one thing, there is no injection pump. The throttle is purely electronic and oil level or condition won't have anything to do with it.
