    I had the same problem a few years ago. A few months prior I had replaced the OEM throttle body with a new BBK throttle body. The truck drove fine for a couple of months then one day it just stopped. I would wait a minute or so then it would start. It would do this on and off for months. I noticed when it stopped that the fuel gauge did not read or went to empty even if the truck was full of gas. I replaced the IAC and the crankshaft sensor but still the problem would return. The truck stopped one day so I started checking for a loose wire or bad connector. I heard a electrical spark while I was checking wires near the throttle body. Turn out to be the wires to the Throttle Position Sensor connector were loose and not fully seated. I moved the wires and noticed the fuel gauge started to read and she fired right up. I pushed the wires in until them were fully seated and the problem was solved.

    Sounds like you need the expertise of RottenRonnie. Him and some of the others are a wealth of knowledge on these trucks.

    just had this happen last friday. runs fine, sputters and dies. Did it once, then again. One thing I distinctly noticed was when it died and I tried to start it - it sounded like the injectors weren't sending fuel, or there was no spark. It sounded not right. Towed it home there was a crankshaft positioning sensor code in it. It would start and idle in the garage, but it had that code. They don't set them for no reason. So I swapped the crank sensor. all good.
