Here's my CPS story, more proof that CPS is a finicky item.
Soon after I bought my truck, I was driving my truck 80mph on a California freeway in the fast lane, four lanes in each direction, extremely heavy traffic. Suddenly, with absolutely no warning, the engine instantly dies. Miraculously, I made it across four lanes of heavy traffic to get to the right hand side of the road and stopped with no engine running, no power steering, and no power to the brakes. The engine wouldn't restart, however, after about 15 minutes, I got it to restart and I am able to drive it home. This was before the CPS recall. Then the exact same thing happened again a second time.
I was able to find this forum and find out what was the problem. I went to the Ford dealer and bought a new CPS, installed it, and it has never done it again.
