I'm new to this diesel thing so.....

what is this cps thing that goes bad on the 7.3's and where do I get one and what am I aking for? Since I'm a new to me owner of an '02 7.3 f250 4x4 it seems to be a good idea to have a spare. Thanks Kelly

It's a camshaft position sensor. I think someone found one on e-bay but not sure... Hopefully one of our vendors will chime in soon and help ya out!

Welcome to the world of diesel...!!!
I got my CPS, the proper black one, from www.powerstrokeshop.com for $98.
They are a Discount Ford outlet for Fleet Service.. Seemed like good prices for the right gear....

Good Luck ....

welcome

Hey man welcome to powerstroke.org.

Here is a place off ebay for a CPS. Cheapest one I could find. The CPS comes in Ford packaging, you can almost get 2 for the price of one.
