Mark

I have a 95 psd (7.3 ). Recently I was driving and the engine quit running as if I had turned the key off. Looking at some of the ideas on this site, sounds like the cam sensor, not sure. I have new oil, glo plugs and change the fuel filter every other oil change, (6000 miles). it starts right up after a minute and is ok for a week or so and dies again always starting back up. This is with no towing load.

Please help!

Thanks, Mark

Mark... it does sound very much like you may have cps problems. For you there is some really good news, however. It was confirmed to me just last night that Ford has dramatically lowered the price of this sensor!

Here is a link to a very good write up on how to replace you cps.

Thanks Brian, My 95 is getting ready to turn over 72,000 and havn't had to do much to it yet other than glo plugs and wireing harness on the left bank. It's an f-350 crew cab dually long bed and only use it to tow a 30 ft. fifth wheel. I will be in WYO all of may so will have to tinker with it when I get back. Thanks again.

WOW! a 95 with 72k miles thats awesome I wish mine had that low of miles!
welcome to powersroke.org!

before you change your cam sensor check your oil... you say it was just changed if it doesnt have enough in it the oil preasure will not fire the injectors... but its more than likely the cam sensor
