Engine Performance problem
2005 Ford F250 V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 104000 miles
After more than 20 minutes of city driving or more than 30 minutes of highway travel the trucks rpm gauge begins to surge. In the city at stop lights the truck will bounce betwen 500 rpms to 1100 rpms. Then as I accelerate there is no engine response. With the gas pedal to the floor the engine is still idling. After I idle to the side of the road and be patient it responds after about 5 minutes. Yesterday same problem occurred except I had to park overnite on roadside and then the following morning it started up no problem. What could be causing this?
On interstate travel the battery light has been coming on whenever I accelerate even the slightest amount. And the batteries were replaced this last month.
Took the truck to Auto Zone for their engine scan services and since the check engine light wasnt on they wouldnt scan it. All during these issues the check engine light has yet to come on.
