Shuts off at idle

My 01 just started doing this. Every so often, when I am at a light that takes a bit to change, the truck will just cut off. It will be idling fine then just shut off with no warning. Then it will just start right back up.

Does it just shut off as if you were turning the truck off via the ignitoion or is it a sputter and spit and then die?

It just shuts off as if pulled the key out. No sputter or spit.

the only one I could look up for the diesels was 152.74, the one for 36.06 was for the gas engine.
