This is kind of a longshot but I have seen three of these vehicles where there is a problem in the wiring harness on the drivers side of the vehicle near the top of the inner fender by the washer fluid tank. There is a splice in the harness where one wire splits into two or three others and this splice gets corroded enough that the connection fails and the truck stalls. It's fairly easy to check by carefully peeling back the plastic loom and tape that are wrapped around the harness and looking for any splices that are green or corroded. Cleaning and resoldering the connection will usually fix the problem. Worth checking out as it looks like most everything else has been tried. Good luck, hope you find your problem!

    The pickup in the distributor can go bad, causing the computer to trip the shutdown relay, grounding the ignition and killing power to the fuel pump. One way this can be tested is to tap the distributor (not the cap) with a screwdriver while the engine is at idle. If the engine dies when tapped then its the pickup in the distributor.

mcdevito75 here, It could be a dirty screen on the fuel pump itself, or a weak fuel pump. Have your local shop check it out. At the very least have the shop replace the fuel filter.

Fuel pressure intermittently drops causing sputter and die.


check for 12v constant at your fuel pump if you are not getting that replace your relay.
if you are getting 12 volts at your fuel pump the fuel pump is possible to run tuel it gets warm then shut down to a lower rpm I would then replace the fuel pump
