Great deal on an ICP sensor!!!

My '01 F250 started having a fit going down the interstate the other day jerking as if it was shutting off and then smoothing back out. For the last two weeks it was occasionally going dead radomly and when coming to a stop. I replaced the CPS last year with the good one from IH and thought it was going out, I went to IH and got another one and this did not correct the problem.

I was headed home after installing the new CPS (still jerking/shutting off) and I remembered that last year I noticed a little oil in the ICP connector and plug and I had I cleaned it out with carb cleaner. I stopped in a parking lot and the motor was idling rough and loping like a pro-mod dragster. I remembered reading on here that if you unplug the ICP and the motor smooths out the sensor is bad. I did this and of course it smoothed out. The truck ran like a champ with the sensor unplugged since I read that it puts the truck into some kind of safe mode with preset values for the computer. I've been running with it unplugged for the past four days with no issues.

I checked the price of a sensor with the local Ford dealer and they wanted $186 and IH wanted $143. I checked on eBay for one and found one new in the Ford packaging for $90 shipped. I bought it and it came today and it is brand new in the package just as advertised so I thought I'd share this with everyone in case anyone else needs to replace their's.

This guy has a few more of these so here's the link:
