Question Died while driving

Over the weekend as I was driving about 30 mph my truck shut off abruptly as if the key was turned off. I tried starting it and it would run for about 5 seconds and shut off again. There were no lights on, no trouble codes, no smoke, nothing... At about the 5th time I tried starting it it ran for about 2 minutes and shut off again. Then I waited 10 minutes, started her up and its been fine ever since! I'm thinking it was maybe the fuel filter got clogged? I have nooo idea what to think, if maybe I should bring it into the dealer anyway? It's been running fine ever since Saturday.
Your input is greatly appreciated!

I would at least take it in and see if they can pull any codes. If nothing shows up, it wouldn't be a bad idea to replace the fuel filters.

If it is the CPS, it should have set a code. Won't necessarily show a light though. Don't see a whole lot of problems with the CPS in the 6.0.

never seen a cps on a 6.0 go bad , maybe one that i thought it may have been a possibilty , but then it even turned out not to be and was a internal ficm problem, sounds like fuel pressure , or maybe an icp sensor if its early production 04

My sister had a Tempo with a similiar problem except that when it quit it would be dead for maybe 30 minutes and then might run for a month or ten minutes before it would do it again. It would just shut off while she was driving like you turned the ignition off and nothing you could de would get er started till you let it sit for a bit. She spent over a thousand bucks trying to fix the problem at several dealers before my friends garage told me of a recall on the cpm that was just issued. Hasd it replaced and the car ran without a hiccup for another couple of hundred thousand miles. Ford reiburesed her for much or the cost associated with the problem.

mine is just starting to do that also it does not stop the truck but when driving every so often it acts like a miss or shutting off the fuel supply

Installed new filters and a pressure gauge but I don't think fuel is the problem

also had a problem when pressing the peddle the truck would just Idle (played with the conections on the fuel pedal and throttle body and that has not happened again

Oh, read somewhere in these forums and the pedal problem. That is caused by the pedal position sensor or something like that

Sorry about that. Didn't mean to imply that it wasn't or couldn't be the CPS. Just saying that you don't see them. I was a shop foreman at a Ford dealership for 2 years and never seen one bad.
