Cam Sensor is the most common "problem". Easy to replace and mostly durable.

I Support: Trailer brakes an every axle over the towing vehicle's GVW; CDLs for RVers; Safety inspections for ALL vehicles and 6 axle trucks (97K GVW proposal).

Same.

The 7.3L has only one real "issue" (other than BS disgnostics by untrained techs), that is the CPS.

Van models also suffer from flooding of the IDM, but that is Ford's fault - BAD location.
