OK, I know I hear loads about the rev limiter, and having replaced only to have to spend more on tune ups, filters, breathers, etc, etc only to find that the problem is still there and that there were other simple typical problems overlooked that could be causing these symptoms. So you should know that these "other" things could be causing a variety of other "non" issues, some as simple as the distributor cap working it's way loose. Check that (as well as the spark plug wires) and make sure they are firmly seated and the cap is locked down tight (This has resolved this problem the last three times I've been asked to look into this). Second, these same issues are what you should expect from a dirty throttle bottle, remove the large air hose and clean the inside of the throttle body, making sure there is no gummy varnish holding the butterfly gates opened or closed. I like to use baby wipes as they contain no harmful chemicals and contaminants, one or two usually allow you to wipe the entire surface area clean. If after doing these things, the problem still exists, I would investigate replacing the IAC (Idle Air Control) valve. these are very simple and affordable things you should do to fix the problem, with no need to go much further.

The most common causes of engine stall at idle are a dirty throttle body and a faulty idle air control valve.
I would check those things first.

When you press on the gas when the truck is running, does it rev up?

Did it die while driving down the road (foot on the accelerator) or when idle? - If so, try cranking it and get your RPMs up to 1500-2000 RPMs and put it in drive (with your other foot on the brake). See if it will continue running if you never take your foot off the gas.

you may have a dirty fuel filter or the throttle plate may need cleaning.the throttle plate is the valve that moves in the intake when you move the gas pedal.if they get too dirty they cause a restriction in the intake and cause the car to stall.it also could be a tps sensor problem but this should put the check engine light on but not always.the breaking up of the motor when you rev it to 4000 rpm`s is the rev limiter in the computer that shuts down the firing of the plugs and injecotrs so you don`t cause damage to the motor when there is no load on it.
