Urgent! Truck dies/misses occasionally

I was letting my truck warm up, and I noticed it had a slight miss for one second and acted as if it was about to die (really quickly, just literally for one second). I didn't think to much of it because it runs pretty strong otherwise. So I go to reverse out of my driveway when all of the sudden it does die. I still had battery power. So I restarted it and it ran fine again. I drove about 15 minutes away (all on backroads) and I felt the slight hesitation/miss for a brief second again while at low speeds. But then the truck came back to normal and it was fine ever since...until today, when I drove 20 minutes to school. I was early and I let the truck idle in the parking lot and again I felt the slight miss. WTF is going on? My oil pressure gauge is reading normal, my oil level is correct, I'm about 3k miles on this oil change, and my fuel filter was replace recently.

I should also add I bought the truck 5000 miles ago and have been driving it daily ever since. It now has about 227,xxx miles.

Find someone with a good scanner, such as an autoenginuity, something that gives you live data. You might not have codes, but a good scanner can show you what's going on.

Good tip, I'll be contacting a couple places soon. Hopefully they have access to a good scanner.

Any other suggestions are appreciated. Has anyone else had similar symptoms?

To me, this sounds like a fuel issue, but I'm really not sure. Advanced auto parts and those generic places won't have a scanner that can read our trucks let alone log real time data. Good luck, and let us know what happens, I'm curious.
