I have a 1996 F250 4x4 7.3 with 167,000 miles auto trans
When i start my truck for the first time in the morning it will run for a few min and then just die with out warning just like if you turn the switch off i start it back and the same thing happens. But once the truck is up to temp. it will run forever. iam lost on this one and would appreciate any info to get this problem fixed. Thanks

How would i know if the cps is going out? do i just change it and hope it solves the problem. Does this sound like a problem that would cause because after it gets up to temp it will stay running with no problems..

I have heard of many different types of ways they cause the truck to shut off. no more than 30 dollars at Ford. They have been recalled before anyways, so they are bad no matter what!
