2006 Sportage. Why does it shut down randomly?

Many possibilities. The fact that it starts right back up does eliminate some issues though. Probably best to use a scan tool that allows real time data while driving to catch the exact failure. Could be dirty IAC or EGR. Could be wiring/connection fault. Could be signs of soon to fail fuel pump.

I was doing about 55 mph when my truck stopped. it starts rite back up, but won' stay running unless you are pressing the gas as soon as you let off it dies out but will start rite back up

This is probably your cam sensor on the front passenger side of the engine on the front of the crank shaft get the part from the nearest dealer cost is under $40.00. It takes about 10 minutes. The timing pointer is part of the hold down for the sensor. Unplug the old sensor and undue the hold down bolt, twist back and forth as you pull it out. Reverse procedure to install new sensor.

Ford f250 stalls when driving down the road,

What year... What engine? need info..... If it is a diesel with 7.3 L engine it is most likely the cam sensor. When it cranks does the tack work? that is another sign of a cam sensor It is on the front of the engine just to the right of the harmonic balancer top side. Replace it with a black one. Also could be in your IPR if diesel.

My injectors stop spraying while driving.

If the crank sensor is failing it will shut down all fuel and ignition systems via, ecm/pcm modules. its located in the same proximity of the crank shaft pulley and you will see the sensor housing and its wire clips around the outside of the crank shaft pulley.

I can t communicate with you via the regular window because you rated my threads already with a thanks for trying before i could type the crank sensor solution.
