Bottom line if you have a 7.3 the cps is gonna go. Multiple times even. Thats the biggest downfall of these motors though it's still a pretty small one when compared to some of the 6.0 problems. I just had one go a few months ago. Thing just cut off while going 35 mph. Just slowed itself down, and I was able to pull over. Had one in my glove compartment, and it took 10 minutes to swap it out. Fired back up, and hasn't been a problem since. Keeping one in the glove compartment if you are mechanically inclined is always a good idea. If you are mechanically inclined it's an easy roadside repair.
