1996 7.3 PSD

Good morning,

I have a 1996 F250 with 7.3 L Powerstroke, 306K on miles, fresh oil change level is good. New wiring harnesses, pig tails, glow plugs, fuel bowl, fuel pump and turbo, all new up top except injectors and glow plugs. plugs were changed 2 years ago, injectors tested with 1 and 8 noted on high.

Has drove a great for a week with good fuel, today while sitting at light, truck died, took a couple of minutes to sit then multiple starts, sounding like it was starving for fuel, finally cranked. Drove about 3 more miles went to pul in parking space, died again with same start back procedure.

I am thinking of replacing the CPS, which the last one was after market, not Motorcraft. I believe the UVCH and IPR are good but not sure.

Any advise?

welcome to PSN.
is the tach moving when it is turning over?
no tach movement is a sign of bad cps.
and ford or international only for CPS and most other sensors on these engines, they do not like a lot of aftermarket parts.

owner of almost to many fords.

If you want the moral high ground, make sure you're not standing on a hill of horsecrap.
