7.3L Turbo Diesel dies driving down the road
I am a big time lurker on this site and decided to chime in today because I have reached my limit. According to all the posts I have seen on her my issues are a faulty CPS. I have replaced CPS sensors from O'reilly, then I read more and learned you had to get factory ones from Ford tried that didn't work either. I have been through about 7 of them in 1 month. Problems:
- Some sensors will start the truck then it dies a little later and won't re-start.
- The factory ford CPS started up for a second and then the truck died would not start back up. I put the CPS in from O'reilly and it started.
- Now the one from O'reilly will die unless I keep the rev's up by putting it in neutral at stop signs, etc... It drops below 1K RPM and it dies. I put another new ford one in and it started then died and wouldn't start back up. I put the O'reilly one that is faulty back in 10 min later and it started it back up.
I have been through so many CPS. Everything I read says that's the problem. This can't be right. Can somebody help me. I love the truck but you may see smoke coming from texas because I am about to just set her on fire. LOL
