This just happened to me about a week and a half ago. Mine ended up being the FICM. Are you getting any smoke out of the tailpipe? What are some of your other symptoms? When was the last time you checked the voltage or exchanged your batteries?

That sucks last month my truck had similiar symptoms and ended being the cam position sensor had gone bad. I only have about 55,000 miles on my truck. I'm glad that mine went bad in my driveway and not up in the mountains where that day I was planning on being.

He'll need to be able to data log in order to go much further. Either that or take it to a dealership.

Can't be exact but it is on the very front of the engine slightly on the passengers side behind a pulley. Easiest to get to and see from underneath. black or grey plastic peice shaped like an L with a plug going into it. held on by a L shaped metal bracket with a 10mm socket
