I would just replace the filter, they are so cheap just throw a new one in. And my guess for random dieing is cps. Good luck with the truck

Yep it sounds like the cam position sensor is going out. Next time it dies, try cranking it and see if the tach moves. If it doesn't move than its the cps for sure.

The moving tach thing is OBS only

I thought the obs were the only ones that didn't do it.

Well thanks for stealing my thunder dave. J/K. I can't keep track of what is what anymore. Either way it sounds like the cps is his problem or at least a good place to start.

The filter is nasty and should be changed I agree. But your problem sounds like the CPS. If the truck hasnt been in for the recall. Drive it to the closest dealer and have them swap in the new one for free
