Have you changed anything prior to this happening.
Don't know if you see those symptoms or not. One of these should do it and both are very easy to access and replace from under the inside engine cover. I had this issue exactly. Call around to the 100s of transmission shops in your area for the cheapest price. Spidey knows batter than I but I'd wonder about the fuel pump relay.
A minute later the engine shuts off again. Ok, so I give the truck however long it took me to write the above thread and log off the internet. Exercise the throttle during each measurement. If the weather is above 73 and I sit at a red light , when I take off the motor dies but the fuel tank has to be at half full or less. I might be getting a 71 C-10 real soon! Since it will start back up each time I'm thinking it needs a new fuel filter, but for all I know, the computer could be shutting the fuel pump off for some reason.
The engine will only crank but not start at all or. Please respond if you know what could be the problem. Initially when the truck stalled it wouldn't even start at all. Remove the mounting bolts and detach the starter.

A hoist is easiest but 6 people can lift it easily. It's just 3 very fine wires with a little transistor in the middle. Can't get a good eyball on it though as I'm so far unable to get the top plastic cover off the column. Instead, I found an owner that recommended cleaning the Mass Airflow Sensor.
I figured it was very close to going to the junk yard, instead I've put another year on it and still drive it. But, I am not automechanic. Haven't had the problem since I replaced the computer. Security light staying on or flashing is not good. Tried it once, but read another article to repeat three times.
The engine will start momentarily and after a few seconds will die or. Of course, the owners manual says to take it in to an authorized dealership to fix it, but I don't want to do that if I can get away with it. This is how a capacitor acts? Give me some advice if I'm going way too far! There is a testing port on the aft top part of the the engine. You need an owner's manual to know what items to service and when, and for specifications. I just didnt know the damn van was turning off the fuel pump! I ran injector cleaner from Texas to South Carolina and back limping as the Dealer said those were next on the list. No chip in the key.
