So my truck sat for just a day and when I came out the next day to crank it up it just started to sputter like it was missing or not getting fuel. It finally started to idle correctly. I went to the gas station to fill up and when left it started fine, however I drove a mile or two and stopped at a light and the truck just completly stalled. I put it in park and started it again and it cranked right up. I have no clue where to really start....fuel filter? throttle body? or something worse? Any leads would greatly be appreciated. Thanks.

Did any trouble codes get set?

Yep, codes would really help. I would start with a PCM reboot.

Wish I was a little more mechanically savy but is this something I can do or need to take it to someone with the proper equipment?

So I wish I was a little more savy on how this is done but is this something I can so or do you have to have certain equipment to read the codes?

Do you know which terminal on your battery is negative? if you do, disconnect the cable. open the door and turn the ignition to the on position and give it a couple of seconds. Turn the ignition off and reconnect the battery. Turn ignition to the on position and count to 10 without pushing the throttle. Turn ignition off and then on and start the engine. Download the service manual and start studying. Good luck..

I've been having a similar issue. Doesn't happen all the time, but its a pain when it does. Fuel pressure is good, throttle body is clean, was told to check my battery posts for excess debris and to look for loose grounds. Hasn't happened again yet, but its got me stymied too.

Thats the red one or the black? Lucky for me I do. If I can change the plugs on this damn thing which now I understand why the club has SPARK MASTER tabs then it seems like I can handle that. Thanks for the help.

2004HEMImarine: Yeah it only happens evey now and then and I have not been able to really pinpoint anything in particular like bad fuel. Im going to give this a shot and see what happens. I will keep you updated on how I come out.

Sound like the both of you might have a computer ground strap with a little corrosion or maybe loose. Check all of electrical grounding straps and and ground wires. That's how I fixed the same problem on my truck.
