I'd start with what NoRalPh said with the cap since that doesn't cost anything to test. If that doesn't work start looking into fuel pressure. I have this gauge and it is nice cause it has a 6 Ft hose so you can lay it by the wipers and see the gauge why you are driving. You may need to get a fitting though to go into the fuel bowl.

Unhappy Removed gas cap...

So I removed the gas cap and took it for a drive. It ran like a banshee for a few miles, then it suddenly just shut off! I put it on neutral turned the ignition and it started up, it stayed on until I got home (about 1/2mile).

Might need to buy the fuel pressure gauge...

Drove the truck today, ran fine for most of the day. It tried to shut off once, I let go of the accelerator, it ran rough for a few minutes, it adjusted itself... i pressed on the accelerator and it continued to run fine. Things that make me scratch my head!!!!

Still stalling...

Had to have the truck towed... was driving and started to stall, finally wouldn't start, but afterward waiting for the tow to get there I decided to try and start it again...sure enough I drove the truck up onto the flat bed and drove it off. But I can't seem to figure out what's wrong!

Has this happened to anyone?

Is it only doing it while at operating temperature? Or will it stall/no start when engine is cold as well?

In my experience it's only done it while driving and operating temp has been reached. Usually happens suddenly, without notice and after driving for most of the day.

Do you have access to a scanner where you can read parameters? I would say if so hook it up why it is not starting. May give you an idea of what is going on

I do not have access to a scanner. Are they expensive? Would I be able to pick one up somewhat cheap?

They have the torque app now where you get a Bluetooth doggle and use your phone. I think it is about 30 for the Bluetooth doggle and I think 5 for the app. It will let you see all the parameters the computer is reading and see if something is bad.

If you want a full up scanner they have auto enginuity that is about 300

Yea, it's time to take some sensor readings when this happens. At one time getting even basic sensor readings and a complete code retrieval was expensive, but no more -> https://www.powerstroke.org/forum/99-...sis-cheap.html

Because it's a pre-'01 the first thing I would pay attention to is the Tach Needle when it won't restart. You should see it bounce-up to show cranking rpm (shows the CPS is doing its job).

This is sounding like a sensor that is failing as it heats up. Most often we think of the CPS or the IPR. Once you have one of those inexpensive apps you can monitor many things that will help you determine where the problem is I'm sure.

Just "out of left field", how's the Oil? Full & Fresh? Could it be Long overdue for a change? (foaming of really tired oil can do stuff like you describe)
