What are you using to pull codes? Does your icp have oil in the plug? Does it start with the icp unplugged? When was the last oil change and fuel filter change? Do you have fuel at the fuel bowl? Year? Miles?

There was a recall on the Cam Position Sensor for these trucks. Do you know if it was done?

Go here to check: Recall Notices| Ford, Lincoln & Mercury Owners | Official Ford Owner Site - You'll need to type in your VIN.

Do you know someone with a 7.3L that wouldn't mind if you borrowed their CPS to see if it that is it for sure? If it is, then you'd have to get the truck to Ford. They do it for free.

Oil and filters changed about 500 miles ago
Truck is a 2000 model with 56000miles it has a so hypertech program in it
It is broke down at my farm I have not internet there I am trying to get some idea so I can go back and work on it
I have never had any issues or work done on it
