i am only guessing,you may have a weak low pressure oil pump. if the oil level in the resivour goes below the oil level sensor it will kill the engine.by cranking the engine over the l o p shoves oil to the resivour, the sensor sees that it has oil the engine will idle. the next time the engine dies, check the oil level in the resivour. there is a plug in top of the resivour, the oil level should be above the sensor. i hope this helps

There's no "oil level sensor". That's not how a HEUI engine works. What kills a HEUI engine when there's insufficient oil feed from the sump is the simple fact that the HPOP can't get enough oil to build sufficient hydraulic PRESSURE to fire the injectors. Your lube pump (aka "LPOP") is working, because you're getting a reading on the dash "gauge".

But there may be something to this. I noticed the dash "gauge" dropped juuuuust slightly _before_ the engine stalled. That might indeed indicate that the HPOP reservoir ran out of oil and starved the HPOP itself, killing the engine.

FIRST things to consider are the oil level IN THE CRANKCASE, and the age of the oil. If the oil is old and breaking down, it could contribute to this.

The oil level in the crankcase is good but it did look like it could be changed, I just got the truck so idk when the last oil change was, the guy said he had just done it but the oil that's in there don't look very fresh

I'm not sure if this would help or not, but what oil did he put in there and did he put any type of additive/treatment that could be clogging things up? I'm thinking it's probably not the issue but you never know.
