Urgent help needed

2002 F250 7.3 powerstroke......DEAD....at intersection in Laurel, Maryland. Driving on highway, it just quit! Did this several times, engine light comes on and it quits.......then it can be restarted a few minutes later.........It started doing this when low sulphur diesel was bought (NO OPTION)......then put in 40 which was the best that could be found. Now the truck is only running for a mile or so and quits! The low sulphur may just be a coincidence......Son is in the Navy and 200 miles from his duty station...........it is 9pm and he has to report by 7am...............ANY SUGGESTIONS?

First off have your son call the ood ( officer of the day) have him explain the situation to the ood. Most likely the OOD should pass this info onto your sons C.O. the C.O. can then grant another day of emergency leave or tell your son to get there asap.

Second most likely it is the cps ( cam position sensor). This is easy and now relatively cheap to fix. You will need the new sensor 30 bucks at the local dealer. Then you will need a 10mm socket 3 inch extension and then ratchet. The sensor is located at 11 O'clock on the front of the engine cover between the water pump pulley and crank pulley. It has a metal tab sticking out of it and it has one wire clip that needs to be disconnected. Then remove the nut or bolt that holds the sensor in place. Then remove old sensor, then poke a finger in the hole and get some oil on the tip of the finger. Put this oil on the oring that is on the new sensor. Insert the new sensor into hole. Put the bolt or nut back on and tighten down. Then reconnect the wire. Then crawl out from under the truck and attempt to start.

By the way 90% of the time with those syptoms it will be the CPS.
