Help,she just died

I have a 00 F-250 7.3 with 148,000. Has always started like a dream. Took off about a week ago and about 3 miles from the house it died. No hesitation, just quit. Started right back up, went 50 feet and died. Started back up and ran for a week with no problems. Died again today. 3 times. Please tell me its not injectors.?? D

From what you are saying, and from past postings and other members having similar problems, sounds like your cps(cam position sensor).or have you already tried changing it?

even if its not the cps, its a good idea to have a spare. its easy to change out, and some what of a weak link for the 7.3l

mine just started the same beepbeepbeepbeep thing

My 99 F350 duallie PS just started doing the same exact thing. It's only got close to 100k miles. Service engine light just finally came on only after a day of it starting to shut off but it did'nt store any codes. I do think I'm going to try the same....

It is a GOOD chance the CPS will fix the problem, BUT before you throw expensive parts at it let's start with the basics. Have you checked the oil level in the HPOP res. ?? If you have access to a code scanner (autozone will do it for free) I would have them check for pending codes and see what it comes up with

Wink New CPS

This is me smiling. The new CPS is in. Whoever said "easy to change", I beg to differ. After about an hour of twisting my arms into positions I never dreamed the thing finally came out. You cant see it from above and you cant see it from below either. Thank goodness the new one went in with no problems. I am not on foot and am the proud owner of a new 10mm socket. Thank you all for your help. Deanna
