Hello. I have a 1999 f250 7.3 6 speed. I am having issues with my PCM diode located in the fuse box under the hood.

Every four months or so the truck will begin surging while pressing on the gas pedal. Once this happens the diode will blow within a few days and require replacement before the truck will start. When the diode does go the truck will turn over but the wait to start and check engine lights do not illuminate.

I have taken it to a shop numerous times and they always tell me it's the gas pedal assembly and it must be replaced. "I've replaced it three times now". I'm convinced this is a different issue. When the diode is replaced the truck runs like a champ. Any ideas?
