No acceleration on my 2000 For F-250 Super Duty.
My truck starts first thing and runs fine (no time limit) BUT when I get to my
destination, turn off the truck, come back out later, the truck WILL crank, got into
gear BUT the check engine light comes on and stays on and I cannot accelerate at all.
I turn it off and leave it off sometimes 15 mins and sometimes up to 3-4 hours and it
will crank, no engine light and accelerate just fine. Please help if you can I am tired of
getting stuck in places for hours on end, I HAVE A JOB!
throttle position sensors bad
Thank you very much! How do I find out where those sensors are and if I can replace them, please?
ya know i was thinking and it may even ne something acting up with your cruise control somewhere or the traction control (anti slip). take it to a local autozone and have them hook up a code scanner. theyll do it free and give you a little print out of the code its throwing. go from there. im not a ford guy but it sounds like one of those 3 things to me. also ask them to reset your computer with the scan yool. ps. the tps is on or around your throttle body (like a carb) and i dont think you can just buy one and slap it on. i think they need calibrated and adjusted first. cruise control operates off of vacuum and a signal from a speed sensor prolly on or near the tranny. the traction control stuff is greek to me.lol. i had a 99 z28 that had that crap. if you broke the tires loose even a smidge it locked the gas pedal to a point where slipping stopped. almost put me in a ditch a few times. thats all i got man. i suggest investing in a chiltons book and if possible the factory service manual. good luck
check your batteries you may have a bad one
