Question about Cars & Trucks
I purchased this truck new in 05 and maintained it by the book. it has never been monkey'd around with and is 100% STOCK. The first time it died was back in febuary in a rough gravel road construction zone when I was coming home a gig around 3am. I called a tow service, but before they got there the truck started and I drove it for another 2 months with no problems at all. then yesterday the truck died when I got on a road that was rough as a cob. it eventualy restarted, but died again 2 miles farther down the road. I towed it home and pulled the bed off and changed the fuel pump assembly with a new unit. then tonight I was driving on a rough gravel road again, and it died and wouldnt restart. I left my wife with the truck and walked home to get my welding rig and tow it home. while I was walking my wife gave it a try and it started, she got home about the same time I was walking into my driveway. this is very stressfull, I bought a $350.00 fuel pump did all that work, and still not fixed... anybody have any advice here... Im about to go trade this thing in in a 350Z or something...
No engine light on? Sounds to me like the bumpy road may be knocking something loose. It would help to know if you have fuel pressure when the problem arises.

Testimonial: "the engine light came on once, but went out after I changed the fuel pump. I agree, i will try to find or borrow a pressure gauge to check this while i am driving.. "
