2002 Motor dies and starts hard

I've got a 2002 7.3 that runs fine going down the road, but every now and then if your at a stop sign or at low power it will die, but start right back up. It also started not wanting to start in the cold morning unless plugged in. I've changed the cam sensor, wondering what to do next.

Thanks
Jason

How many miles? Whats your fuel pressure?

Search "fuel pressure gauge" for info on where to hook one up.

Then you will want to run a cylinder contribution test with a good scanner. I'm betting on low fuel pressure and worn injectors.

Nonconformist. Functionality over bling.

My three rules for 7.3l troubleshooting: 1) Replace CPS and keep a spare. 2) Replace FPR and know your fuel pressure. 3) Hook it to a scanner and check for codes.
