Same hesitation - 05 6.0 Excursion
***?? My truck has been doing this for the past 6-7k miles (I'm at 45k now). I'll be waiting to enter a stream of traffic, or sitting at a light. I step on the pedal and NOTHING!! I stomp it to the floor, and hold it there for 1... 2... then suddenly she takes off like a bat out of hell. But in the meantime, I'm about to get plowed by the line of traffic. I brought it to the dealer and asked them to check the turbo. I took a chance, since they said that if they didn't find a warranty issue, I'd have to pay $200 for the diagnosis. I lucked out, and they found bad corrosion on the turbo impeller. Replaced parts, and I was back on the road. A few days later, and I'm back to Old Unfaithful. This is driving me up a wall, and is becoming truly dangerous.
