A friend of mine just called me and said his 03 6.0 died in traffic. He called the Ford dealer and he said the cps may have went bad. I have never heard of this on a 6.0. He said the tach showed no rpms while turning over the motor. Has anyone had a cps failure and does the tach not show any rpms like a 7.3 when it is bad?

I have yet to replace any CKP or CPS sensors on the 6.0s. I have found many wire chafes that will cause the stalling issue.

I had one go bad on my 2004. I was traveling 60 mph and the truck shut off suddenly. I lost power everything and had to coast off the road etc. It would not turn over at all. I was in the middle of nowhere hunting but luckily my cell phone worked and the dealer towed it in and replaced the cam position sensor. That was at around 8k miles and I am now almost 28k and have not had any other issues.
