i have heard afew complaints of the 7.3 powerstrokes shutting of and catching itself going down the road and it is the cam shaft sensor. ford has had a recall on them and if you own one from 2000 to 2003 you should get a letter in themail to get it replaced. it is fairley easy to do. i did it myself and it cost less than 50 bucks
The 1997, 98 and 99's were in the recall too. and I think the 1995 and 96 are included as well

my f350 with 7.3 seems to run find until i get it on the highway. when i reach above 60 i start hearing a missing noise (like a hissing noise) then all a sudden i start to lose power fast to the point i pull over and turn it off. after i turn it on it runs really ruff and still lacks a lot of power. when i finaly get it home and let it sit for a few hrs. it seems to run find again until i go on the highway. i had the cam sensor replace. does anybody have any ideas?

I had the same problem, 99% its the crankshaft sensor. Dont use factory they had a recall. Buy an international brand sensor.

Have you replaced the fuel filter? Do you have the correct fuel pressure?

I have a 1999 F250 with the 7.3L powerstroke diesel. Replaced both batteries and now it won't crank. All the lights come on with the key turned, the starter just won't engage. It was turning over while being jumped this morning prior to replacing the batteries. Now...nothing when the key is turned. Any ideas?
Thanks!

It may be your fuel screen in your fuel tank or on the side of your frame.

My 2003 f-350 7.3 diesel has a hard time starting after sitting 6-8 hours. Will not start if sits for days not started. No codes come up at dealership. Replaced glow plug relay, glow plugs, fuel filter. Does not help plugging in either. Cold weather coming. Any ideas.

Yes I had the same issue. You may have a bad cam sensor. This will cause the engine to shut off randomly at idle or while going below 15 MPH. A good tech should be able to troubleshoot this, if they can't consider going somewhere else. After the cam sensor was replaced on my 2000 F350 I have had zero issues. Best of luck.../Patrick
The cam sensor is probably gone but do you know that Ford has a recall on this part

I have a 1999 f-350 super duty- 7.3. My problem is that the service engine light is on and then truck has no power. I have three coeds that have come up, they are P0603 ,P1280 , P1690. The P0603 is an internal control Modula error. The P1280 is integrated control panel out of range and the P1690 is a waste gate cylenoid circuit. I have checked the linkage in the turbo it moves freely without binding. I am guessing the turbo is not making any boost.I have checked all vac. lines an plugs everything there looks ok. Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this problem?
