engine cuts out, almost like it's missing

Hi. My 99 7.3 f350 developed a problem the other day. After driving for about fifteen min out started to stutter and cut out almost like it was missing. Every couple of seconds this would happen, just cut out for a split second. A little background on the truck, I've had it got three years now, it's stock aside from the exhaust falling off a couple weeks ago and I got rid of the air box for a napa filter. It has done this before but only once and at very random times, I never could put any rhyme or reason to when it would happen but again it would only happen once. This time it was happening constantly for about a half mile until I pulled over and shut it off. I let the truck sit for the day there and came back to it after work. Started it up and drove it ten of the fifteen minutes home until it started again. So I pulled over, shut it of and restarted it to see what would happen. Well after restarting it, it ran fine the last five min home until just before I pulled in the driveway. Oh and when it started doing this consistently the service engine light came on, which never happened before. Seeing the light cane on I tried using my odb2 scanner to see if I could get an answer but it won't read it. I did some reading of my symptoms and it sounds like it could be any number of things from a cps, to a bad hpop, or even the injector harness or injector o-rings. If you guys could give me any help on either what could be wrong or how to test things to figure out what is wrong, that would be great. Thanks!

Absolutely sounds like a bad CPS.
