Loss of power.....

Well in the morning or even after work..... If I do not let my truck warm up just a little of bit.... I will get going down the road and then.... the power just goes away.... I can put it the floor and nothing will happen... it will just die.... I will stop cause it died and then finally get it started again..... and after I sit there for a couple of mins. it will then let me take off and no problem again..... and it even happened yesterday when it was in the high 80's..... don't know what to think or what is going on.... kinda crappy that I have to let it always warm up before I take off......

change your fuel filter lately???
pull codes from your computer. your CPS may be going out.
you might have clogged injectors and warming your engine may loosen the junk. find some injector cleaner.

CPS = cam position sensor
it tells the computer what position the engine is in so the comp know when/where to put the fuel. unfortunately, for the 7.3 motor, it's the most unreliable part you have. if faulty, you get studdering, lose of power, engine suddenly shuts down.
this part is so unreliable, it is recommended that you have an extra in your glove compartment.

well bad news it wasn't $27 I spent $204 including taxes... and it still didn't fix the probelm... on Friday I did change the CPS and fuel filter.... it still is hard to start, and if I don't let it set there for 5 or 10 mins..... and I start to drive it after it runs for a min or so...... it will just die on me and then it takes around 10 mins... to get the darn thing started again..... I don't know what else it can be.... but it does run fine after it warms up for 5 or 10 mins though.......
