Went to Roaring River trout fishing over the Labor Day weekend. Fishing was great. I took an extra day to go checkout a campground I was told about. So Monday the wife and I hitchup and pull the 5er over to this other campground on Table Rock Lake about 35 miles away. Got to within 6 miles of the campground and it was like someone just turned the key and shut the truck off. Scary part was we were going about 50 mph on a two lane black top, no shoulder, no power brakes or steering. Luckily came up to a small strip mall and pulled in. Called a friend who lives in area couldn't believe it. He was camping in the very campground I was headed to. Had truck towed to campground (Good Sam did it)and my buddy came and pulled the 5er. Replace the CPS and all was good. Went shopping in Branson for a few hours Tuesday then went back to hook up trailer. Made it about 5 miles from campground and truck shut off again. Took about 3 hrs to get a tow. Same guy as day before. He towed truck to local Ford dealer and his wife towed 5er to a campground near dealership. Well they got it fixed today was the IPC module? Anyway to late to start for home and only work 4 days a week so took the rest of the week off. Going to stay in Branson a couple of more days. Hopefully be able to make it home Saturday. Well that's my story and the one I am sticking to. Happy camping, John

P.S. The campground we went to check out was Mill Creek. It is a Corp park and one of the most beautiful campgrounds I have ever been in. Will definitely be going back.

Ughhh...2003 early 6 litre. OK, there's a sensor called the ICP sensor mounted behind your turbo. It controls the injector pressure from the low pressure side oil system. Oil pressure is what fires your fuel injectors and you need at least 500 PSI to get them to open. If you unplug the ICP sensor from the harness usually you can make it home. If that's all that was needed thank God. The early ones had some SNAFU's. I find it odd they had to replace the Crankshaft Position Sensor AND then the ICP to get you home. I think they were tossing suspect parts at it.

Doesn't really say who change the CPS but it is curious.

Same thing happened to me a few years back. In Utah doing about 60 on the I-15. It was about a fifty mile tow into Richfield, late on a Friday and holiday weekend. The dealer could not even look at it until Tuesday. The tow driver even dropped our 5er at the local KOA. Those folks were very good to us, even offering to take us shopping. Turned out to be the CPS also. That seems a common problem for 7.3s. I have a different truck now but it's still a 7.3 engine.

rattleNsmoke, I replaced the cps myself. After doing some research on FTE I saw that it maybe the ICP and dealership came to same conclusion. Any way its fixed now (hopefully). And its a 7.3 not a 6.0. Here are a few pics I took this weekend.

In the back ground you can see my buddy pulling our 5er. The next pics are of our site at Mill Creek Campground. The last is our view from the door.

I kept the original CPS I don't think there is anything wrong with it. I will keep it as a spare. From my research the ICP often will work after the motor has cooled. Mine quit the second time after pulling up out of the campground. Its a very steep and curvy road for a couple of miles.

My road spares kit contains spare MAF sensor, crank sensor, cam position sensor and NSBU trans switch, along with serp belt, tensioner, pullies, fuel filter & WIF wrench, bulbs and fuses, along with 2 code readers, one basic and one with extended diagnostic capabilities. That stuff can become very expensive when you have to be towed somewhere to get it. So far, I haven't had to use any of these parts, but you never know....

Well we decided to go back to Roaring River State Park for more trout fishing!!!! Asked the wife what she wanted to do. She says let's go back to Roaring River so you can do some more trout fishing and I can sew. She's a keeper. Truck ran great seems like it runs better than before.

To FordDiesel250, Mill Creek Campground is on Table Rock Lake. Just south of Kimberling City of of 13 Hwy in Missouri.

That looks like a great place to stay. Did you get lucky with your site on the water or is that the norm? I have been to Table Rock but did not know there was such a beautiful campground.
Thanks for the pictures.

Plan's before today was leave Pensacola Fl on 9/03/13 and go to Branson for a week. My updated plan is when leaving Branson go to Mills Creek campground for a few days. That is a very pretty lake and campground. Thanks for the pictures. Good luck with your Ford.
