F350 DIESEL SPUTTERS AND SHUTS DOWN WHILE DRIVING

1996 Ford 500 • 2WD Manual • 210,000 miles

I have a 1996 f350 7.3 turbo diesel. The other day I was driving (about 10min into the drive) and the truck lightly began to sputter then shut off. It was like someome turned to truck off. After a few minutes of trying to restart it it finally started but was weak. It then died again. I gave it a few more minutes (about 5-7min) and the truck fired right up and drove home fine. So I replaced the fuel filter and double checked for water in the lines, none was found. Truck drives awesome yesterday. However, today it did the same thing (after about 15min of driving). It sputtered, got weak and shut down. Only this time it took me about 20min to start it. Whats going on? I heard cp sensors are famous for failing in this model/ yr of truck.
