Why does the truck stall while driving but turns on after a little while?

Very Possible Answer

I can vouch for Fords on this one. The ignition module has always been my remedy with this problem. I also had a surburban that did this a few times also. A lot of my problem, and those in this area, is the dirt content that builds up on the fords since its outside of the distributor. With the chevy's it just heat buildup. If you have the ignition system tested, 99% of the time, since its running while being tested, it shows no problems, but run for awhile, and bamm, it dies. It is a low cost, simple fix, and the first step I hit from now on when a car/truck comes to me with this problem. Hope this helps.
