hesitation

I have a 2001 F250. Back in 2008 I had the cam position sensor replaced during a Ford recall. Recently, the "service soon engine" light will come on and the engine will fall to idle for a few seconds. After the light goes out the engine returns to normal. Also, while accelerating it will hesitate. I went to the dealer, but they want $100 just to check it out. I appreciate any ideas to fix this problem.

Does it only do it while it rains? Or is it all the time? Do you have gauges or a chip?

I bought the truck used in '05 with the gauges and chip already installed. This is my first diesel truck. The boost shows very little movement and I have not tried to drive it without the chip. The chip is set on high tow because we tow a camper with it.

Is it a superchip? Anyways you may want to unplug the chip and try to drive without.

Sorry I'm such a novice. It is a superchip. I'll have to try that, plus check the up pipes. Thanks for all the advice.
