had the same problem a year ago with my 96er, ended up be the IDM was dying.

if you see a light at the end of the tunnel, it's probably just a photon torpedo

i have you get an IDM off the internet, if you are willing to just throw $$ at it.

if the EBPV is some how sticking closed, then you would lose power. just disconnect it, that will cause it to stay open.

problem solved?????accelaration problem

ok everybody i think i got it at least i pray so there is a 3amp fuse in the fuse box named accelarator position switch the fuse was good so i put it out of my mind as possable culprits this time it was dark when i pulled the fuse and for some reason i looked at the socket and noticed the prongs were wide open there by causing a intermitten contact causing the truck to go back to idle when ever the switch lost power lets all pray that this problem is solved i've noticed that there were several postings with similer problems i hope this helps them as well
