dont get the ac delco, etc brands as they are the same bad original design as ford.
Thank you stackz, I will check into that tomorrow. No engine failsafe, no nothing but a wrench showing up on the truck dash which does not come back on after shutting the ignition off and restarting. Now to track down prezackly where that throttle position sensor is.
Sounds like that could be it, has always done this but very, very infrequently. Jim
