Try changing the fuel filter on the truck sounds like it is not getting enough diesel to it. Also check and make sure there is no water in the system. If you have water in the system they make a product that you can put in it to remove the moisture. Can be purchased at any local parts house.

2000 Dodge Durango SLT 4.7L Wont Accelerate & Stalls

Not much information. Does it drive at all or will it run a bit? Can you get it in drive? Some of those doges will give you a code for the check engine light in the trip meter if you switch the key on and off to the ON position three times. (Not the START position ) Then you can look up the code on the internet and add that information to your question.
In the old days there was a thing called a choke puller that would adjust the carburetor from idle and when they got old and didn't suck out the choke you had to go full throttle just to keep the engine running. Now with computers controlling the engine with sensors the codes are very useful, plus knowing what your doing when it stalls. Otherwise no one could possibly have any idea.

In cold weather, my car is slow to start and has stalled a few times. What should I check?

You don't say what make of car but it's about the same for all. Your problem is the choke adjustment. The choke raises the idle when the car is cold and after warm up drops to normal. You are doing the chokes job when you hold the pedal down, once its warmed up the choke no longer functions till cold again. So check the choke and the high idle speed adjustment. Simple fix. Hope this helps mike

2004 hyundai xg350 stalls when warm restarts when cold

sounds to me like it could be the engine coolant temp sensor.If the ECT goes bad it will run very rich which would allow it to run fine when cold but choke out and stall when warm.i know it sounds silly because people say what does coolant temperature have to do with the fuel ratio? But with fuel injected vehicles these day they do not use choke flaps or enrichment valves so the ECT sends the temperature info to the cars computer and it then uses that info along with info from other sensors to adjust the fuel to air could try to simply unplug the ECT and see if it cures the stalling issue.If it does not stall when unplugged then replace the ECT

Ford f250 stalls when driving down the road,

What year... What engine? need info..... If it is a diesel with 7.3 L engine it is most likely the cam sensor. When it cranks does the tack work? that is another sign of a cam sensor It is on the front of the engine just to the right of the harmonic balancer top side. Replace it with a black one. Also could be in your IPR if diesel.

My 95' Chevy diesel k2500 stalls out when im driving it. it will idle just fine and starts back up right after stalling. truck will drive about 1 mile before stalling again. What Can I check?

I have replaced many injector driver modules on these diesels. GM has redesigned it and i have never had a replacement one fail. This is a known problem for the 6.5 diesel. Unfortunately its about a 500 dollar part from the dealer, and requires intake removal, and some very tight work space to replace.

Throttle light flashing randomly

You didn't say if it was diesel or gas. I never heard of or saw a "throttle light" & I'm a Chrysler master tech. Engine light,yes. Will need much more info to solve. Like engine size,diesel or gas,auto or manual trans,etc. VIN would be helpfull.

1995 tahoe desiel stalls when driving

I used to live on a farm where we had a number of Chevy diesel's in the 90-98 year range. The 6.2 and 6.5L diesel's in those trucks were known to have problems. A very common problem was with the fuel injection pump going bad, causing the engine to intermittently stall for apparently no reason during driving.
