Throttle Sensor?

My ST has been at the dealership for the last couple days.
it’s having intermittent issues accelerating.
I initially had this problem a couple months ago and the dealership couldn’t ever recreate the problem.
Fast forward to this week, same issue and same response from the dealership.

The way it’s behaving reminds me of a TPS problem I had with an F150 years ago.
Does the ST even have a TPS?
Anyone have an idea of what else could cause this?

I just had an issue today upon accelerating with the ST lurching and seemingly not getting any power. It almost seemed like it was in limp mode. I'd try to accelerate and it wouldn't go more than 6 mph and no power was getting to the engine. Then all the sudden it would lurch forward and then not go anywhere. I had been idling in a parking lot for a handful of minutes prior and shut the engine off. I started the engine to leave the parking lot, everything seemed normal until I tried to accelerate out into traffic and it wouldn't go. I stopped and turned back into an empty lot and could again barely go. I stopped the engine and restarted the car and it wasn't getting the appropriate power again. Stopped and restarted again and drove it in lot seemed okay enough to drive home in traffic...I'll be calling the dealership but of course I am afraid they won't be able to recreate it...tried to pull codes here at home and there were none thrown. Any word from your dealer??

Nothing new from my dealer, other than promising to have the service manager call me.
