Question about Chevrolet K2500
You will probably find that when this happens it is not getting fire to the plugs. With this many miles on it, it is probably the ignition control module in the bottom of the distributor. Pull the cap off and remove the rotor you will see a black half C shaped module mounted in the bottom of the distributor with two bolts and has two plugins on it, remove this and have it tested a couple of times until it gets hot and it will probably fail. This is a common problem and not very expensive to fix.

With out seeing the truck......
I would want to check for a fuel injector pulse when the truck has stopped.
I would also want to check for spark at the plugs/coil.
The cooling off/waiting time to restart has me thinking........#1 the coil, #2 the ignition module, #3 non vented gas tank.(removing fuel causing a vacuum which stops fuel flow)......but this is not likely.
Hope this helps.....from Edwards Ont Canada.....10 mins south of Ottawa.
