2002 F250 SD 7.3 Died..?

This happened to me once about a month ago....going down the highway and started cutting out and died. I didnt have a clue what was wrong, it would turn over but not start. I plugged in my superchips and reset it to stock (Had it programed to safe tow). It started up and ran fine. I programed it back to safe tow the next day and all has been fine until the other day. I drove up and parked, shut it off and when I went to leave it just turned over and wouldnt start. finally after continously key on and off and spinning it started. been good for about a week. Tonight I pulled up in yard, left it running and all of a sudden it died?....tried to start it and just kept spinning over. finally after 20 min of messing with it, it started. Put in drive and went about 50 feet and died.

I dont know where to even start looking.....anyone have this problem or ideas?

Thanks,
Hollywood~

lol CLASSIC CPS symptoms. change your CPS(cam position sensor) its a whole 25 bucks or so at the parts store, actually ford will probably do the recall for free if you havent had it done on the truck yet... if thats not it other obvious things are check and make sure you have fuel, fuel pressure, hpop is full, etc.

x 2 on the CPS first thing to change, if it doesn't fix it you have a spare!

Really wierd....I went out this morning and it cranked right up.....I called the dealership and he said, yes this truck was one with a CPS recall. Ran up there and about 20 min was on my way. Guess we'll see if it works now. Thanks for the advice.

Hopefully it is the CPS. Same symptoms could be from your PCM starting to fail. Mine did the same random intermittent stumble/die thing for 5 months before the PCM finally died altogether. I thought it was CPS too so I changed it. Made no difference. Good luck and hope its only $30 CPS rather then $800 PCM.
