Truck died and wont start

Ok, so i had to do emissions the other day so i took my truck down to the emmsions place, it works fine there. when i got back my truck cranked but would not start, then i tried again and it started fine. a few hours later i went out to the truck and tried to start it and again it cranked but would not start, i tried one more time and it started fine and i was on my way. This morning i went to start it, and it started fine, i moved about 10 feet with it and it died, i tried to start it again and it would only crank, i did this 4 or 5 times and it would not start. I finally got it started but then i shut it off and tried to start it again but it would only crank. Any ideas what is wrong with it ?


Its a 1997 F350 automatic trans, has a bully dog 6 position chip, DIY intake, and 4" turbo back exhaust.

Call your local dealership. I don't think they are that bad anymore. Been a while since I bought one though. Some of the sponsors have them also. I'd have to go look for them.
