I have a 1999 F-350 6.8L V10. 135,000 miles. Engine will start but won't idle. Pressure on accelarator will keep engine running even at low RPM. Once you take foot off, engine dies. Tried Fuel injector cleaner, and fuel treatment.
Just won't idle, even when warmed up. Any suggestions? Thanks.

How does it run under load? Any check engine light?
Have you done a tune up? You may have to replace the TP sensor, or maybe a PCM reflash. I need more info.
