Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So just recently when I was exitin the highway I
made a hard stop and my truck turned off on me.
She starts up just fine and runs just fine but ever
she dies out on me when ever I make a hard stop or
tries to. Any suggestions? A buddy of mine told me
it might me a sensor.

How much fuel is in the tank, if your making a really hard stop and the level is low it might just be running out of fuel. Fill the tank and try it again, if it still does it then start looking for loose wiring, especially grounds, then for weak relays, you will need a scanner with live data and freeze frame capabilities too test for sensor or computer problems during a hard stop.

There was about half a tank. Thanks I appreciate it I'll give it a try
