Now that cold has come to vermont, my first grief with my 2001 ford f250 that I bought new. Starts fine and runs good to the supermarket. After shopping for approx 30 minutes, restarts fine. Once underway the engine will stall in traffic. I'll wrestle with the steering ,shift to neutral and restart engine. Usually by nursing throttle engine will begine to run better as it rewarms . After a few minutes everything is fine but all confidence in the old 7.3 is shaken. I've changed the fuel filter.air filter and have refueled at different stations. the temperature has been about 24 degrees when this has repeatedly happended.

Till now the truck has never stalled even once. I don't know what it would do on a trip. I don't trust it enough to take it on one. Only 31000 miles on this engine.

Any ideas? Thanks

Sounds like a CPS to me. Do you have a code reader or know someone with one? The CPS won't allways leave a code but its a good place to start. The CPS is over $100.00 at Ford. I bought mine on E-bay for $50.00. Check it outand let me know.e all learn together.

I had to pick up a cps at a ford dealership when my truck wouldn't start in my own garage. The code reader never gave an indication. I did this replacement about six weeks ago. The replacement went pretty smooth once I got the right wrench. I've waited this long to respond because I've been waiting for a cold spell to be certain the problem had been fixed. YAHOO!! I'm certain it fixed the problem.

Thank you for your suggestion. I very much appreciate it.

My 7.3 has ran beautiful for 214,000 miles with the cam position sensor replaced at 6 months for free--warranty and again at about 150,000 miles these things are expensive out of warranty. $650 for a $200.00 part and the rest for labor and towing.
One wire plug in and one bolt= $400.00 labor according to ford dealership. They only got me once. Now it fails to start once it is warm. Starts great when cold think it's time for a new CPS---- CONFUSING IN TEXAS=CITY PUBLIC SERVICE.... HA..HA

Is now 5-29-2007 and replaced the Cam Position Sensor it ran a little while but now it is stalling and won't start again until it sets all night. where is the fuel pump on this engine and how hard is it to replace? Also, do the computers go bad on these things and loose programing because my transmission still has no 4th gear.
