New from Wisconsin

REcently bought 95 F350. Had sat for yrs. parts missing from engine. Replaced vac pump, serpentine belt , map sensor, ebp sensor. batteries, tank selector valve, GPR and got it started with no check engine lite. Road tested, it , water in fuel lite came on and it died. Pulled tanks, cleaned , repaired screen , installed water seperator, Drained filter twice, Replaced filter. WIF lite still on but truck starts and runs at idle but will not accelerate until warm . Disconnected what I thought was wire to flapper by turbo. No change , Installed 205 thermostat, no change . Current problems are wif lite on, And no acceleration until warm. Might help to know how this electronic throttle works , Any advise appreciated.

I appreciate this forum, thanks for the replys, here is an update to my throttle problem. [ 95 F350] This morning I removed the pedal assembly to check the idle switch and get a good look at it in general. I checked it with a continuity meter and it seems to be working as it should . [no continuity until activated]. I couldnt see any problem with the wires to either connection so shot some WD 40 on contacts since I didn't have contact cleaner and reassembled. No change. Engine was cold - no response to pedal action. I then tried to drive it . 20 MPH tops. In about 1/2 a mile it started to get alittle better and then slowly came to life. Drove about 10 miles, engine warmed to center of gauge . This is the first time this truck has visited the center of the heat gauge since I have owned it . I wanted to see if once it was warm the problem was gone until the engine cooled. I stopped to fill with fuel , let it idle and when entering traffic lost throttle briefly but got it right back when I kicked the pedal. This could be dangerous in traffic. It still seems temp related but I don't know why or how.
