Just a little background, 2002 F-250 with the 7.3 284,000 miles. I just bought it. Doesn't seem like the PO did much other than changing oil, filters, etc. Anyway the last 2 days as I'm driving the truck will do a quick misfire like action and then it dies. I have had it do the misfire without it dying about three times, but twice it has died immediately. It won't start back up right away, but if I come back to it later, it fires right up. Changed the CPS yesterday after the first bout, and still had the problem today. After reading through several posts, I'm thinking maybe IPR, maybe even the seals on the IPR? Or maybe the fuel screen in the tank? What do you guys think? Thanks.
The after market sensors have a reputation for being susceptible to RFI (radio frequency interference). Probably the best thing to do would be to pick one up at the nearest dealership and see if it cures the problem before spending time and money on other things.

I read on a forum that hearsay isn't allowed on the Internet . . .
Thanks again. I've been having an oil leak, that I was trying to trace down too. Do you think it's possible the leak is coming from the IPR and that was causing my stalling problem? Or is it not likely to leak from the IPR?
