WAS RUNNING GOOD, TRIP OF ABOUT 10 MILES, STARTED TO DIE, ENGINE RPM DROPS AND THEN QUITS. RESTARTED OK BUT ALMOST IMMEDIATELY DIED AGAIN. SON LIMPED IT HOME, DOES START BUT ENGINE RPM IS A MAX O F2


If it dropped below freezing, you may have water freezing solid somewhere in the fuel system; try a bottle or two of "Dry Gas" and while the vehicle is running, it should mix with the water and get it out of the system!
