I'm having the same problem, but I'm blowing out a bunch of black smoke.
I think it might be my VP44 Injection Pump (I/P)

:welcome2:

If pushing on the go pedal, or taking your foot off of it doesn't change anything, it could be the VP44, but could also be the APPS (throttle position sensor)
.
I would check the connections, and reset the APPS. Never done it, but if IRRC, all you do is diconnect the batteries for 30 mins or so, hook the batts back up, then turn the key to the "run" position (but do not start). VERY slowly (and steady) depress and let off of the pedal. That should reset it. Then try to drive it around.

I'd try checking and reseting the APPS first, you might as well, its free. And if you try the vp and still have the problem, you'll be kicking yourself.

I Don't Usually Type In Caps
But This Is Worth It.

The Problem I Was 100% Sure Was The Vp44.
Ended Up Being A Blown Hose.

Chief Wahoo Was Very Happy.

I agree with Phily 911, if you push on the pedal and nothing happens I would start looking at the fuel. But starting with the APPS isn't a bad idea and it is easy.

Yeah, there are lots of weird things that can happen. I was sure my VP was going out, because my truck wasn't running well, and would die on me, once on the freeway. That turned out to be a tach signal wire for my R.A.D. But check everything before replacing the expensive part.
