Charlie Papa Sierra

New to the site, reading along trying to diagnose my problem. I just bought an 02 F250 7.3 and in the week that I have had it I have noticed a few problems. After reading through everyone elses posts it sounds like the CPS. It would stall when cold, after idling for about 5 minutes. I changed the fuel filter, and now it idles fine. The other day coming home, it shut off as I was headed down the street. I started it back up went about a hundred yards down the road and it happened again. Started it back up and let it idle for a few minutes and I was good to go. I checked/changed the oil, it was about 2 qts low. It stalled on me again today. Did some reading through the forum here, and ordered a cps off ebay.

Aside from that, this is my first diesel truck. I am currently trying to sell my old blazer to buy parts for this new toy. I live in VA and I have been in the Navy for ten years.

I would say that the CPS is a good place to start, good luck!
