6.0 Throttle Position Sensor

I have a 2003 6.0 and the throttle pedal has about 1/2in to 3/4in travel at the top that nothing happens.. When bringing it off idle
it takes a lot of pedal movement be for rpm's go up.. when driving
under 15MPH it seems that the engine rpm's jump around (surge).. anyone have any ideas?? needs a new TPS?? I can't see any ajustment

Re: 6.0 Throttle Position Sensor

There is no adjustment. The TPS has three sensors. Two are identical and the third is an exact reverse of the other two. If one sensor goes bad it will throw a code, but the pedal still works. If two go bad, it will limp home.

Mine has a little play at the top too. I have not put a tape measure on it, but I could guess it is about a half inch. It bugged me at first, but now I don't notice it.

My dog freaks out and shys away from anything new in his world. I moved my bar-b-q this weekend and he would not go out on the patio. He's only 4 months old. This is normal. When he grows up I expect him to handle things he's never encountered before a little better than he does now. <wink>
