2005 F250 - Location of ICP and EBP sensors?

Hello all. Very recently, my 2005 F250 started stuttering, lurching, having wild swings in rpms, nearly dying at stop signs, no pickup when stepping on the gas, then taking off like a bat outta hell. After reading many, many posts here and on other sites, I have concluded that the most likely culprit is the ICP sensor, so I picked one up today (along with a EBP sensor - another story). It appears from the many posts that I have read that Ford/Navistar have frequently changed the location of these sensors. My question is: Where are the ICP and EBP sensors located on the 2005s (actual manufacture date is 07/2004)? Thanks.

The ICP sensor is on the RH valve cover just in front of where oil filler pipe is located. EBP sensor is on a tube attached to LH valve cover bolt but stands away from the valve cover.

Thanks Jimmy.....going to hit both of those and the EGR valve in the morning. Was hoping it was going to warm up (20 degrees now), but lookes like it'll be the same. At least everything is on top and front.

Success - ICP

Thanks all who not only responded, but those before me that posted their experiences and solutions. Both were invaluable to me in solving my problem. It's been a day since I replaced the ICP sensor and so far no shuttering, stuttering, hesitation, wild rpm swings, etc. Hopefully, knock on wood, my problem is solved. Thanks again.
