How many miles? Ever replaced the CPS? Sounds like a good possiblity. Mine went out in similar fashion.

no problem. welcome to the site.

CPS is the camshaft position sensor. Ford calls it the CMP I believe. Its fairly common on the 7.3's. I just replaced mine 2 weeks ago with 93k miles on the truck. With the right tools it only takes about 10 minutes to replace. You can find them on Ebay for about $60. Ford will charge you $150 or more from what I've heard. Most guys here even carry a spare even the glove compartment. I'll see if I can dig up some other posts about them with some instructions on replacing them. You'll need a 10mm socket and ratchet with at least a 3" extension and you're good to go.

Here's a good post on the replacement. ---> LINK

If you have any codes, that would be a good place to start diagnosing. I'm pretty new at diesels myself and just from reading a lot of posts on here, as soon as it starting happening, the CPS was my first thought. With your mileage, I would say the chances are very good that the CPS is going out. You can do a search for "camshaft position sensor" on the site and find lots of threads about the subject.

Hope that helps.
