2003 F250(7.3) misses.... then dies

Hi all. I am Mike... a military man from Louisiana, thus the name. Anyway, I have a 2003 F-250 with the 7.3 l in it. While driving along, the truck seems to loose fuel for a brief second, then the "check engine" light comes on. At times during idle, she will die out also.. I have no idea. If anyone responds, please use the laymen terms instead of the abbrieviations... not too familiar with the lingo.. Thanks.. Mike

First off welcome, Have you pulled the codes? Kind of sounds like a classic CPS going out. CPS is Cam positioning sensor.

This problem seems to be common but usually no check engine light, (at least when I have to diagnose it) anyways as brrs3633 said it does sound and it is most likely the Cam sensor...
