CPS Confirmation

I have read up to 9 pages of problems with the CPS. I'm pretty confident that its my problem. The no movement of the Tach kinda tipped me off. My check gauge light also comes on, along with the oil pressure gauge jumping up and down. I had a friend run a check, there were no codes found. My question is, should I run my Edge and return to stock first? Or should I assume the pure evil is the CPS and just replace it? I have yet to change the fuel filter on its since I bought it used. That should probably be my next step. Also, what's the story on using the blue from International, or just the Ford part. Looks like I'll be buying it from Ebay if it costs the same anywhere else. Thanks for any input.

I suggest replacing the fuel filter, change the oil, and then if your still having problems change your cps. I state the oil because dirty, or low oil level can cause the syptoms to make you think that your cps is gone bad. If you add up the cost of the oil filter and oil, and fuel filter. If those fix the problem then you saved yourself about 75 dollars. If not you did maintanence to your truck you normally would have done anyways. Then change the cps, because if those things do not fix the problem then your cps is most likely bad and needs replacing. I get mine from the dealership. As I have had good luck with them. I have only had to replace one in my truck and I got 143,000 miles on my 2002 7.3L

Pretty sure the tach doesn't move on the 02 anyway.

Oh, I didn't know that, only on the older rigs then?

I keep up pretty well on the oil/filter, but the fuel I should do. Thanks for the input.
