Dieing

my 95 ford 7.3 will die from time to time, it starts back up most of the time , I checked the wiring and replaced the ignition switch and it still does it. any help would be awesome.

does it die upon start up? idling? driving down the road? all of the above? mostly likely CPS camshaft position sensor. they are known to fail on the 7.3

94.5 F250 Reg Cab 4x4 5 speed 4.10 276000 plus miles

97 F350 Crew Cab LB 4x4 5 speed 3.55 320000 plus miles (parts truck)

Yeah, need a little more info on the symptoms, like how often, and what was going on when it does it, and how hard was it to get started again. Did you happen to check codes? Did it seem to happen more when the truck was facing up hill?

CPS and my ICP was causing the random turn offs but hard shifting and throwing a code too. Throw a CPS in it, make sure its a Ford brand.

it dies mainly after warms up, some times it starts right up and other times its hard to start. I've changed the cps and the irp, but really not a name brand.i notice it is taking a little longer to start up.
