More information would be helpful. It sounds like a fuel pump issue. What year and model is the truck? How many miles and what other problems are accompanying this issue? Nissan had a problem with their wiring harness on many frontier and Xterra models around 2000 model. The wiring harness on top of the fuel tank would corrode and lose contact with the fuel pump. Most would die while driving with no warning. Some would exhibit signs like your. Drive for a while then die. Bumps would some times effect the running of the vehicle too.

SOURCE: truck starts, dies. truck runs good some days,bad the next

I had the same problem with My 1990 F150 300 6cylinder 4x4.....I cahnged all the same things you did, finally I sprayed a can of Gumout through the throttle body and it worked and ran great. Now I add fuel injector cleaner to the gas and a regular clean with the gumout and the problem has'nt come back. Good Luck to you and hope it works!

SOURCE: 1989 Chevy K2500 - idles fine but stalls out when put into drive.

Sounds like the injectors may be bad or just really dirty. You say that the truck is only used as a plow truck, so I would assume that it sits alot. If you dont add any fuel stabilizer to the tank, the fuel will start to degrade and the will gum up your injectors. One thing you can do is to pull the air cleaner assembly off and look at the injectors while the truck is running. Look at the bottom of the injectors while it is running. The injectors shouldbe spraying fuel with a fan spray of fine mist. If you see any drips of fuel in the this fine mist, that injector is at least dirty or on its way out. I would recommend that you change your fuel filter and then get some fresh fuel and the purchase some Seafoam fuel injector cleaner from your local parts store. Dont mess around with anything else. GET SEAFOAM. If it is in a plastic bottle it is not strong enough to do anything. Seafoam is in a metal can. Dump the seafoam in and run the truck as much as you can. This will help clean out the injectors.

SOURCE: TRUCK WILL NOT IDLE, DIES WHEN I COME TO A STOP

Those Fords Have Problems With The IAC(Idle Air Control Valve) On Top Of Intake By Throttle Body. It Might Even Be Making Some Weird Noises? If Not Check Timing, And Fuel Preasure.....Check For Vacumme Leaks. Good Luck

SOURCE: truck sputters and dies when you put it in drive or reverse.

Most Likely a vacume leak. Check the engine and surrounding engine bay for a loose hose. I would check the mass air sensor, make sure it is free of debries.

The truck is cutting out has no power dying when you stop wont idle right after it gets warm and won't idle at all


Not sure what you are working on, but it sounds like your coolant temperature sender is bad. When the truck is supposed to come out of phase lock loop it is not and is acting like the choke is on all of the time.

I have replaced the fuel pump on this 92 Ford Ranger. I put a fuel pressure gauge on the truck. It will idle for about 20 seconds with the pressure running between 70 and 80 psi. After a few seconds, the...


The mechanic should check on the idle .Because the Idle of the truck is adjusting by it self . That causes the truck to stop .check the Idle then lock it up to so that it will not adjust until it will make the truck stop .the main reason why the truck stop and pressure guage going down steadily is that no fuel enters the fuel pump when it adjust Idle by it self . It adjust by closing way or blocking the fuel to pass and go to the engine.then the engine dies .

The truck dies while I am driving


I read this in a blog and it worked for my truck. I cleaned the throttle body and the air filter. It seems to be starving for air when you are just at idle cause it would not die when I was going down the road. Only if I was pulling into park with the rpms really low. Just pull the intake off and clean the throttle body. You will see a bunch of gunk. Clean it until it turns silver again.
