Possibly interfering with cmp signal. I'm assuming you have had the cmp sensor recall performed? If so may want to wrap cmp wires with flexible metal conduit and ground the conduit to the block. Or the easiest solution is to avoid the area!

Yes I've had this problem since I bought my truck. Friday I had to limp past an ambulance because it almost shut my truck down. See the links below:

Link to the recall? I ran the VIN for my '02 and didn't find one.

Just a quick update. I saw on facebook where a guy was having problems with a CB radio causing interference. Someone suggested unplugging the ICP sensor and trying it. So I figured I'd try it to see if it fixed my radio tower interference problem. It worked! Plugged in, the truck spit and sputtered and even shut off if I was close enough to the tower. Unplugged I had no problems what so ever. I noticed it had a new ICP installed when I got my truck so I assume the previous owner used a cheapo parts store ICP. I'm going to get an ICP from the Ford Dealership and hopefully it will take care of it for good.
