Angry 7.3 Starts when cold dies when warm

I am in the "land down under " Australia , I have a 7.3 F250. I was driving along then vehicle shut down like ran out of fuel.
Towed to mechanical garage, have replaced CAP sensor, HPOP sensor, oil temp sensor, new IPR kit, the engine coolant sensor appears to be okay when checked, checked IDM, checked computer, replaced air filter, fuel filter, changed oil and filter, checked relays and all seem to be okay. Fuel pressure is reading 60psi when running and when it shuts down.

The vehicle starts when cold, then when it warms up (about 15to 20 minutes it shuts down.

Can anyone give me any other suggestions, the mechanic is scratching his head in bewilderment.

**** Yeah ha!!! Release the pidgeons, finally back on the road after 4 weeks in the garage. The problem was the solnoid on the IPR, I have the vehicle back with spare bits that were replaced that were fine, just gald to be back on the road. Thanks for the help from everyone.

No codes? I'd hook it up to a scanner cold and wait for the shut down and see if anything shows up?

Tried the scanner, showed some codes, cleared them, restarted engine, when it shut down there were no codes.

The code was the oil temp sensor, mechanic has replaced it, still no go.

The cam sensor was the first part replaced and didn't help.

The truck went to the auto electrician last week and the computer was checked and working. They are still going through all the systems and will let me or the mechanic know whats is up, they seem to believe it has something to do with power between ignition and computer.

Do you have a remote start installed? I went back and read your first post. When I remote start mine and then don't drive it, it will shut down in 15-20 minutes. Just a thot I had?

No I don't believe there is, as I have no device for that . To make sure I'll have the auto electrician check, there should be a electronic hand held device for that ?????

Mine (installed before I bought the truck) has a black box hanging in the wires behind the panel under the steering wheel. I control mine with a key fob. I suggested it because you just never know? Good luck sir.
