Suddenly Dies

So a couple weeks ago on my way home from work i was turning threw a light and my truck just died. It did it a few time the next week and has not happened since. Any ideas? These little problems sure seem to turn into real money grabbers quick so i want to try to take care of it before it progresses. I know i need to get it on a computer and check it out, thanks

My truck has also done this, and changeing the CPS has not made any diffrence. Stalls at times, and just 'hiccups' alot of other times. Not to say that it's not the CPS in your case, and I agree, that would be my first try... yeah, get it on a good scanner and check the codes. I have found that even if the SES light has not been on, it will sometimes have codes...

The CPS cost less than 40$ from Ford. That's cheaper than getting on the proper scanner in most cases so you should just replace the CPS. It sounds just like the problem. I have a spare CPS in my glovebox.

When the engine dies like that from the CPS it may or may not trigger a SES light.

The CPS shouldn't cost more than $30 and sounds like your problem. But as Scott said I would check for a stored code. You should also carry a spare CPS with you at all times.

My 01 7.3 did the same thing and it was also the CPS. It would kill without warning in the midlle of driving and then starrt up again. It would also mess with me sometimes on start up. The trouble was it would never give a code. I talked to a guy in parts at a dealer who said man just try to change it. I did and the trouble was fixed and that was 2 years ago.

About few months after I fixed it I got a letter in the mail from ford saying they had a recall because of them. Bring it to the dealer and if yours is covered under the recall they change it free.

I have yet to bring mine in because I already changed it and it is working fine. I'm sure we are talking about the same part. This was a sensor located down by the Crank Shaft on the front of the block that has an o ring around the sensor and slots where a small steel holder fits around the sensor and on the other side of the steel holder there is a single bolt that secures it to the block. its not right on top of the crank shaft pulley but a few inches above it.
