7.3 turning off

My buddy has a 7.3 and he is complaining that when he drives around town sometimes it just shuts off. What could this be? Fuel filter has been changed and it only does it stop and go.

thanks guys,

I've replaced several, usually a 10 min job unless the bozo before put a stripped off bolt in.
They are pretty proud of them at the stealership a little cheaper at napa

If you're not in a rush, ebay is the cheapest place I've found them.
Alot of 7.3 owners carry a spare cps and 10mm socket in the truck as sometimes when they puke the truck is dead till it's replaced. Carry a spare and save the towing.
If you need help or more info PM or pager me.
