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

Thanks man! I took it to a diesel mechanic today and he said it was likely something in the wiring. I just thought maybe somebody on here has had the same problem. I don't want him to rip me off and tell me it's something it's not.

Can't tell you how much it sucks to have the whole family loaded up on the way to the lake and boom dead! Call for help, tow boat, tow the truck. Tell the kid's too bad you ain't going to the lake today. Just a bad deal.
