Engine stops when at intersection

OK, here goes.

My 1999 F350 7.3 with 101,000 miles has started shutting down on me when stopping at an intersection (in drive) and also when in park. It has happened 3 times in the last week. It will start right up again and there is no loss of power. After reading the forum, I believe the problem may be the Camshaft Position Sensor. I started looking on the Net for best prices for the CPS and one hit mentioned an alignment tool. On the forum, it sounded like I just removed the old and replaced with the new. Question, am I on the right track (CPS), is an alignment tool needed and if so, what is the procedure.

Thanks,

Al

My dads 00 7.3L had the same probably... started out stalling once in a while and then it got worse. You would be able to call Ford and tell them you're looking for a camshaft position sensor the B model. Ford came out with a new CPS (I believe in April or May) that is supposed to be a lot less expensive and last longer. Cost us only $28.00 if one dealer doesn't have it call another around you. I went through 3 places before I found mine. Should just be able to unbolt and replace it.

I replaced it back in May and all I needed was a socket and wrench. I believe it was a 10mm on a 1/4" drive. That's all he should good. Goodluck! Any questions we've got a bunch of good guys here so I'm sure one of us can help out more.

Goodluck make sure when you call you tell them you want the B model CPS should be about $28.00 or so. The A model (if they still carry it) was about $140.

No alignment tool needed... the bolt aligns it all.

Talking

Mine was doing almost the exact same thing as you described. Thanks to the forums, I knew it was the CPS. I replaced it last night with no problems and she's doing great now. A 10mm socket with a 3 inch extension is all I needed, no alignment tool. By the way, I paid $29.00 for the sensor
