7.3L diesel won't stay running

I have a 1997 F350 7.3L diesel. Recently I started having problems with it staying running. It always starts, but will die after a couple of minutes. First I replaced both batteries as they were needing replaced anyway. I took it down the highway and it kept surging and acting like it wanted to quit running. It always starts right back up, but it won't stay running. I just replaced the camshaft position sensor and that didn't fix the problem either. Any suggestions before I give in and take it to a mechanic?

1994.5 - 1997 7.3L Power Stroke Diesel - Ford Truck Enthusiasts Forums Here is a link to the page for your engine, probably better to ask the guys there.
However it sounds like a fuel delivery problem, maybe clogged filter, maybe bad fuel lift pump, maybe bad fuel pipe connection letting air into the fuel system. The guys on that other page will know.
Good luck.
