97 7.3 Engine Problems

97 F250 7.3

To start off I have had this truck for over 4 years and love it so much. Never have had any major issues. Has 218,000 miles on it.

About 3 months ago we noticed a lope when I would start my truck. I changed the CAM Sensor and it seemed to clear up. The past 2 months on a rare occasion it now will fall on its face, loose petal response, die when driving. (All in this order at the same time) I have just replaced the fuel filter today to see if that helped but I will not know until after I drive it tomorrow when it is warm out. This usually happens when it is around the 90 degree temperature outside and my transmission temperature reaches the 175-179 temperature. No check engine light comes on.

I'm just wondering if anyone else has had this issue (and or) know the fix or what the issue could be.

Thank You For Your Time and Help.
This is my first post thread and reach out for help.

We bought the CPS from our local Autozone. We have heard of that also that they do go bad. I will also check the ICP Sensor just in case, and no we do not have access to a quality scanner. I would have to have my Uncle ship his from California. Our local stores here will not attach one to our truck because the check engine light is not on. And I have been told by them my truck can not hook up to them because its to old.
