Not for certain, but a majority of the time a 7.3L cuts out its the CPS or cam position sensor. Its a fairly cheap and easy replacement so I'd say that'd be a good place to start...

It may be either your pcm conection at the firewall, see if you might of had some rain water or muddy water get in the connection. also the cps connection. If they are both dry and tight then I would look at the cps.

Did you get off the fuel peddle pretty fast? I've had that happen to my truck once in a truck pull. I dont think it is the CPS, just not enough fuel to keep it running becuase the electonics are kinda slow and cant keep up. You might want to get a CPS and keep it in the glovebox just in case though.

I have had this happen to me a few times as well. Most likely there is nothing wrong with your truck. If you just took your foot completely off the pedal. If that is the case then it is typical to happen. From my understanding your tc was most likely still locked and the sudden drop in rpms caused the engine to stall. I bet your truck fired right back up too didn't it.

A cps may fail at any time. There is no given mileage or approximate time when it will fail. As for tge international one compared to the ford one. I think the only difference is color. Some say the international one is better then the ford one. Well I got 100,000+ miles out of my orginal one from the factory. So I put the same one back in from the dealership. Now I have the new one that costs like 30 bucks from the dealership in my glovebox.
