My 97 Ford F350 powerstroke deisel 7.3 has had a re-occurring problem of dying while I'm driving, primarily when I let off of the gas, I have usually been able to quickly start it up again. This doesnt happen every day, but at least once a week, but yesterday, it died twice, once slowing down for a stop and the other while accellerating up a small hill so I pulled over and tried to restart it, but it would not start. I waited a few minutes and then it started right up. While it is running, it sounds fine, runs smooth, no missing at all, and I have ample power. I have 171,000 miles on the engine. Anybody have any idea what this could be caused by?

If the tach is moving and it still will not restart, start looking into a faulty ICP injection control pressure sensor. This screw on the valley side of the driver side head up next to the ac compressor. It is a three wire sensor that people often refer to when they are doing a 10k mod. Try unplugging this sensor and see if she will fire. If she does the CEL light will be on and the truck will be in limp mode but it will get ya home.
Hope that helps

Could you elaborate just a bit on this, please. I've replace mine, etc., etc., from all of the pointers on this forum -- but I've never read this before.
you put in a new cps black or blue you'll think its a power mod. new cps allways seem to make the truck run wicked. that blue or black is just BS. Untill i see someone with numbers on the blue cps i dont beleive it because it didnt seem any diffent then the new black one.

WAIT, STOP NOW, do not use teh blus one, there was a test on it and what happened is it retarded teh timing 4* and increased the fuel load as well, it si not teh right thing to do.
