Gas Pedal

I have a new 07 F250 - the gas pedal is extremely stiff and needs a lot more effort to push down than any other vehicles I've owned- anyone else have this issue?

Maybe the gas pedal is harder to push than the diesel pedal so you only use the diesel pedal.

How long have you had it? It may just need to "break in" a little. Let things loosen up some. Does it feel like it is just due to a new vehicle, or does it feel like something is wrong. If you could swing it by the dealer, you may want to do that and have them look at it for free.

I agree with Logan. I have an 07 and my pedal feels normal, like my car's. A trip by the dealership sounds like a good idea.

I was up under the dash the other day, cleaning mud off the pedals. That accellerator pedal looks different, doesn't it It doesn't look like it connects through the firewall to any throttle linkage, but rather is a fly-by-wire system. Odd.

Good luck.

The pedal in the diesel trucks are bascially just potentiometers. (Drive by wire) When you push the pedal down it sends a 0-5v reference signal to the computer.

That being said, there is a spring on the pedal to simulate the feel of a throttle cable, because that's what we are used to. I'm not sure how much adjustment there is, but if there is a problem it's an easy swap for the dealer.
