Two "hiccups" and a stall today

From the time I drove my truck off the lot Thursday til last night I've had no issues whatsoever besides my radio tends to turn on when it wants to but that should be an easy fix. I drove it 65 miles home, to work the next day, took a big detour home to run errands, took my brother and his gf for a long ride last night, and everything was fine. This morning I went out to show a couple friends the new ride and twice while I was driving (both times while accelerating from a standing stop) the truck "hiccuped" for a split second. It just felt like I momentarily lost power and just like that the truck was fine again.

Like I said, it happened twice, but otherwise the truck was fine. My last stop was the hardware store-I got a call while I was waiting for the truck to cool off before I shut it down. I talked for about 5 minutes while the truck idled and it died. I restarted it right away without a problem and idled it for 5 more minutes before I shut it down and went inside.

There is no check engine light and otherwise the truck drives great. No driveability issues whatsoever. I'm a little worried-any ideas?

Mine was doing the same thing. Hiccup and would die and no check engine light. Replaced the CPS and everything is good to go. You might want to check your fuel filter too, just to make sure it clean too.......

Take it back to the dealer, you have only had it a few days, they will probably just replace it for you no charge, and your good to go.

Yup, and believe me Badfish, it wouldn't be the first used truck to drive of the dealers lot with a bad CPS, If you look around you'll find a thread or two on the subject. So get it back to the dealer as soon as you can and let them know whats going on. Sound like a pretty good outfit, so you shouldn't have a problem
