Occasionsal engine skip

Could someone give me some help in determining what might cause an intermittant engine skip in my '02 F250? I've gotten one skip three times in the past two weeks. Two were at highway speeds and one was during idle. At the idle skip, the truck cut off but immediately restarted. No check engine light. The engine only skips once and then goes away so it's not a series of skips. Thanks. Y8

Thanks, Marc. I have no idea what a cam sensor is but it sounds serious to me.

a cam sensor is a very easy repair.........usually it causes the motor to die....it may or may not restart, and the problem will happen agian and again....eventually it will not start.

sometimes you see them that they act up early and cause a miss or skipp.....its not common, but its a possibility....

where your truck had a check engine light on.....the best way to start is go down to autozone or somewhere like that and get the codes....get back to me and we will attempt to figure it out..........Marc

Thanks for you help, Marc. I will do that. As of now, I don't have a check engine light though.

Mine did that a few times too just before I sold it. I had replaced the cam sensor about 20k before.....they're not fun when they go out cuz they pick the worst times to leave you stranded. It's always a good idea to have an extra one in your glove box....
