NKY noob




This is my first diesel, a 99 F250 powerstroke, stock drivetrain, 4" lift w 315's. sitting at about 256k. Got it to daily, tow the camper and whatever else i can load in her.
Has done great until about the last week. thought i had some bad fuel but... three rainy days and it would hiccup going down the road or die at idle for no reason but would start right back up. two dry days and ran great. rain this evening and it started again.
Love the truck so far but ive always been a jeep guy so this boggles me a little.
I do anything that keeps me and my boys outside and cant wait to tweak on her as soon as funding permits

Welcome to the Org. Your stalling in the rain problem sounds like a CPS (cam position sensor). Replace it and you should be good to go
