Need advice

Is the CPS sensor hard to change on the 7.3L diesel? And can one do it themselves? Any idea how much the part is?

Thanks

Not hard at all. Should cost 15-25 bucks. Ford has a current recall on the CPS failures but i don't know if this includes the vans. you could call a dealership and ask. Here's a good link for info and how-to instructions. Welcome to guzzle's CPS R&R Web Page
