Dead Pedal
 
I'm experiencing a dead throttle after cruising for a couple of minutes at around 50mph. I'll try to accelerate and nothing happens. If I push the pedal to the floor, the trans will kick down and I'll accelerate. Also, when I experience the dead pedal, if I let up and then push the pedal, it will accelerate. I'm experiencing no codes but I think the apps (TPS) may be the culprit. Any suggestions?:4-dontknow:

You need to check for codes by cycling the ignition switch on and off three times. It sounds like your injector pump (VP44) is failing. I had this happen with our '01 5 speed truck. Dead pedal is usually the first sign. When you get your code or codes in the odometer window, google search them.
