died and will not start
whao there cowboy, before you go spending big money, change out your cps
(camshaft position sensor) it is located on the front left side of the engine between the water pump and harmonic balancer. It should have a little metal tab brass in color, but yours is most likely dirty. Either way all it takes is unplug wiring plug going to this sensor and a 10mm socket, takes about 10 minutes to swap this sensor out. The sensor is common to go bad and when it does the result will be exactly what your truck did. Starts running rough, then dies, then hard to start back up and may run correctly or may run rough. The sensor is about 110 dollars from a ford dealership. You can find them on ebay for anywhere from 40 bucks to 60 bucks. You can also get one from an INternational dealer as well. Before you go buying parts I would suggest swapping out the CPS. But then again some one else may have other ideas.
