Starts then stops,then runs after several restarts

I am looking at buying a 1996 f250 with the 7.3
Owner says the following.
"1996 F250 powerstroke ext. cab 265,000 miles automatic trans.The truck will startup but die after a few minutes but crank right back up. after acouple of times of that it will stay running"

Any ideas on what this could be..
truck is $2500.00 as it sits.
Thanks

CPS or it has a bleed back problem within the High pressure oil system it may take that long to build up the pressure to keep it running, but if it runs for a few minutes then dies i would lean more toward the cps.

Welcome to the ORG. As for the truck, could be cps, idm, pcm, UVC wiring harness, with out any trouble codes and with out actually being there looking at the truck it is hard to tell. The easiest thing to do is if you are really wanting this truck ask if you can take it to a shop. Pay the 75-100 dollars to have them hook the truck up to a diagnostic computer and find out what the problem is.

Now you do this with the stipulation that if you decide that it will cost to much to fix, the owner reimburses you for the diagnostic check. You give him all the paper work and let him worry about fixing the truck. Or you make a deal with the seller, as in you offer him a price minus the cost of repairs.
