yes it can. mine did.

there are a lot of guys on here that will probably tell you that the tach isn't really the most reliable way to know if your cps is bad.

What were the symptoms before the truck didn't start anymore?

look for a guy with an Autofair screen name. When mine went bad he replied to me, quoted me a great price for the ford piece and had it on my doorstep in two days.

Yea they can be intermittent, thats what happened to mine, it would work fine sometimes and then others it would kill it at idle.

As for autofair he changed his name its now 2000-7.3L. His name is dylan, he has good prices(dont let him know i said that though)

Before the truck died and wouldn't start back it would act like it would want to take off while not even touching the pedal for some reason when letting the clutch out, and I found that my icp nut had fell off and it was just sitting there going all over the place.
