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...
