New CPS, now rough idle and missing at higher RPMs
Ok so my 2002 7.3 was having some ocassional loping while driving issues and the engine shut off on me once while driving. So I decided it was time to change the can positioning sensor.
I bought a new "grey" CPS from O'reilly Auto Parts which may have been my first mistake. Anyway I installed the new grey sensor then started my truck to let it warm up to see how it ran. After about 10-15 minutes of warming up, I noticed it had a slight miss. So I hopped in and gave it a little rev. At about 1500 RPM, it had a pretty bad miss accompanied by a pop and a puff of white smoke.
I never had this issue prior to installing this CPS so I assume its junk. So I'm going to take it back and try to find one worth putting in my truck. I know there has been a big debate over which one is better black, grey, and navy but everyone has different opinions. Is there any definitive way to determine which one is the best to install? Part numbers would be excellent as well.
Below is a pic of my old vs. new CPS
Thanks in advance guys.
