Truck cuts off when driving?

I was driving the other night about 40 mph, all of a sudden my truck just went dead. I thru it in neutral, started it, and no problems. Then the next day it did the same thing again. What could this be Ford Folks??

CPS (Cam Position Sensor) most likely.

The Ford part # is F7TZ-12K073-B
Make sure and get the B, as the A can cost over $100. The B is a new revision and should be $25 or even less.

Here's a great procedure writeup: Welcome to guzzle's CPS R&R Web Page
