Last week it happened once, I has less then a quarter of a tank of gas, so thought maybe it was that, I added gas and no problem until yesterday stalled 3 times

1st time) left the car running got out came back 5 minutes later car was off (stalled)

2nd time About 1 hr later pulling away from a stoplight

2nd time about 2 hrs later, pulling on my about 10MPH down from 45 on the main street)

Of course everyone has their 2 cents,

1) its the fuel filter (would a filter cause this problem)

2) The fuel pump is going bad (do these things normally give warning when going bad)

Thanks in advance for your help

I have had this happen to me as well....a couple of times for two different reasons. The first time I had this problem, it was the MAP (manifold air pressure) sensor. Truck ran like junk before the sensor failed. When it failed, the truck would not start. The second time, I foung that there was a vacuum line that had a hole worn in it from vibration rubbing against another engine part. I also found a small split in the intake manifold that kept the check engine light on.

Hope this helps.

i had the same problem, it was the PCV valve elbow, the rubber hose (vaccume) that leads into the PCV valve was worn and pinching, causing the vacume to be supressed, change the hose for $7.00 and all was good...
