Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My truck runs great for the first 30
minutes. After 30 minutes has
gone by every time I come to a
stop and waiting for the light to
change it either dies out or acts
like it's gonna shut off. When at a
stop i have to let the truck roll so it
won't shut off. I changed the fuel
filter but it didn't work. Help what
do i do next
