I would suggest the cps also. When I purchased my 7.3 in 01 I had the same problem. Ford installed 3 cps and then there was a recall on the cps. I was reimbursed for the first three cps I brought and Ford put in the latest and greatest cps and no more problems.

Well then you need to post in the correct section, because you post in the 99-03 section your going to get advice for the 99-03 trucks...

Being a 94 you need to provide more info otherwise nobody can help you. We don't magically know anything about your truck. 94 is a bastard year and there is 3 very different possible 7.3's in that year. 7.3 idi N/a, 7.3 turbo, and 7.3 powerstroke completely different engines.
