So I recently had some issues where my truck would stall while I was running. The stall would occur and the SES light would come ON immediately (or maybe the light was ON already). I could depress my clutch pedal and the engine would go to idle and no throttle response. The engine would not stop. A second or two later, the light would turn OFF and throttle response was normal.
The issue got a little worse and sometime it would stutter without the SES light coming ON.
I stopped by my local diesel mechanic and they ran a scan. They were able to see a Low Battery (I had to replace both the week before) and nothing else. They suggested the Throttle Position Sensor. Okay, mine is an '00 and it was an OEM part, the whole assembly pedal, Idle Validation Switch and TPS. It was a $428 assembly.
No issues since then and I did notice no lag when I lightly depress the pedal taking off from a stop light.
At one point the pedal assemblies were on national back order and the price shot up to around $800. I bought one for my truck years ago, brand new OEM for $129 and carry it with me when travelling, so far have never needed it.
