yep, unplug the fuel heater, replace the fuse...good to go. You can drain the fuel bowl and look and see where the heater element has broke loose and grounding itself to the fuel bowl.

I have the same problem. My truck will start and die about 5 min later, and will not start until it xools down. I have change the fuel filter, fuel pump, and fuel pump relay. I'm not sure wear to look know. Is this a comon problem?
