Motor shuts off when reaching optimal temperature

I recently got a 99 F350 manual.
It runs good untill it warms up then it shuts off ,when it cools down you can drive it again until it warms up again.
I did some research and i went back like 10 pages here also ,but nobody seems to have the same problem i got so any help would be greatly appreciated.
I know it's got a new fuelpump and filter.
Thanks

That is definitely the camshaft positioning sensor. Its a little hard to reach but fairly easy to replace. And not too expensive. I think I paid $30 for one at a Ford dealership in the backwoods of Michigan.

CPS: Recall!!!!

Ford dealers will replace for free there is a recall on them. I have almost the same problem but my truck misses only when cold,when it is normal operation and driven about 15 minutes it smooths out and runs great. May be you know what is up with mine.????
