This may be a theft deterrent system issue. Is the ignition key you are using original? If not, try the original. If it is, there may a malfunction in the ECM. Some vehicles will start with non-dealer keys, but will shut off automatically if the computer fails to read the chip in the key within a certain time. Of course it could also be a problem with the ECM overheating or a faulty fuel pump relay.

Truck starts and you can drive it about a mile and it dies if you wait a few mins you can start it back and drive about another mile and it does the same thing again its a 89 f 150 with a 300 6 cyl


It sure sounds like a bad Thick Film Ignition (TFI) module to me. (Also called Ignition Control Module) It mounts to the side of the distributor. You need a special socket to get the screws out of it. The socket and the module should cost less than $50 at most retail parts stores.
