F250 stalled today


I've read through numerous threads about stalling, but they all seemed different than mine today. Around lunch today, after starting my F250-2WD and driving one city block, the engine completely died, like someone flipped a switch. No sputtering or anything. Pulled over and put it in park. Still had all accessory power and when I tried to restart, the engine turned over like normal, but wouldn't start. Made a phone call to a buddy and decided it is probably an alternator problem. Was about to make arrangements to get a tow and tried one last time.....it started like normal. Drove home for 20 miles no problems. Just drove again this evening, no problems.

What I do know:

- Batteries and alternator tested out fine (all are 1 year old), though there was some corrosion on both batteries.

- Truck has 250K miles (original owner) and has been the best vehicle I ever owned. I have had very few repairs (none major-knock on wood) over the years and I am diligent about routine maintenance.

Any ideas what could have caused this? I picked up a new CPS, but have not installed it yet. I'm still running on the "replacement" CPS that the dealer installed after finally issuing a recall, back in 2006 or 07?

Any input would be greatly appreciated!

Try new CPS very good chance thats it.may be a long shot but my truck had same symptoms and turned out to be the tin nut fell off of my IPR sensor(located on back lower side of high pressure oil pump) allowing sensor to come apart,put it back together and solved issue
