    fuel injector circuit boards are known to fry. 750 dollars will get you a new one. you can visually crack the box open and look at the board, its evident when it burns. alot of times they burn and continue to slowly die. sometimes they just crap out all together. thats where my moneys at. or check your fuel. if its cold you might be jelling. any check codes? more info that just "shutting off" would be helpfull.

    where do you live, how cold was it when the truck was turning off? do you think your fuel jelled? do you run additives in the winter time to prevent against jelling.

    when is the last time the primary and secondary fuel filters were changed? you'll need a 36mm socket to change them. worth doing. Ford reccommends every 3rd oil change. filters are about 50 dollars for both at your local autozon or parts store.

    your fuel pump will also shut off if in-adequate pressure is never reached in the system, which would cause a shutdown.

    just got the truck back the other day.........i believe it was a computer to the fuel filter it just kept shutting off so they put new computers in but all that matters is the truck runs now just in time for spring cleanups
