Need Help! Stalls when you give it fuel

I have a '97 f350 7.3 (stock) 125k on it. Going down the road and it just died. Pulled off to the side and tried starting, just cranked and cranked. Got it home and thought it was the CPS so changed that out. Still the same result. So I checked problem (fuse 22) it was blown. Changed that out and it started, but now if I step on the accelerator it will die. Restarts fine idles good and if I give it just a little it will slowly get up to 1500 then start to act up. It will stutter if I hold it around 1500-2000 and if I give it too much it will stall it out. The only other info is its been hard to start in cold weather the last couple of years and blows the white smoke til it warms up. I also noticed a little less power.

Still no luck. Haven't had a lot of time to work on it and track down the issue. I've blown the fuse 2 more times so thinking there is more than a short in the filter heater. I hear that fuse is also for the main computer. Any thoughts out there

Remove that heater and don't worry about it. I pulled mine out and no issues. Are there any check engine light or codes?

While you're in the fuel bowl check the FPR screen too.

Yes the engine light came on the last time I had it running but now it wont run long enough to get the light to come back on so I can't pull a code

A good scanner should be able to pull the code as it's stored in history.

Pull the connector on the ICP and see if there is oil in the plug, if so then it's bad and will need to be replaced. I've heard of people having issues with numerous CPS's so if you can find a known good one then see how it does.

Ok got tired of it not starting so I pulled the new CPS out and put in the old one. We have ignition. Bad heater still I'll probably replace seeing how I'll be doing the plugs soon due to the massive white smoke till warm up happens
