Find a shop that does "live data" scanning, you may have some sensors that are sending incorrect information to the computer when they get hot causing the computer too either lean it out so much it dies or just shuts down, make sure you tell them what happens and when so they know when it stalls out, and won't be wasting a bunch of time trying to duplicate it in the shop and not on the open road. One good thing is it fires back up once it cools down.


thanks for that yea it fires back up the second time i try to turn it on.. i also checked the water in the radiator and there was tranny fluid in the cooling system hopefully that was the problem of my truck shutting off it was probly overheating cause of the tranny fluid in the water and i guess it has some sensor that shuts off the engine to protect it... one more thing avery time the ac is on my truck takes off to slow after light turns green at a stop light and it goes slow untill it starts catching speed any ideas


There again it sounds too lean, so it can't carry any additional engine load at low RPM's, I still think a live data scan is the way too go on this.
