Sounds like the baffle in the fuel tank could be loose. I remember that problem on those when they were new. the only repair for that was/is to replace the tank. before you do that you should install a fuel pressure guage to it and test drive and watch the fuel press. it should stay above 35 psi. and even rise when accelerating if the fuel pressure regulator is ok. good luck.

SOURCE: Stalls out when braking quickly, worse with going down hill

Assuming that the vehicle is equipped with an automatic transmission, it looks like the torque converter lock-up system doesn't release as fast as it should, so if you brake hard, the converter is still locked up and your wheel brakes stall your engine (just like pressing ******* the brakes with the clutch pedal released on a manual transmission vehicle). Normally, when you brake hard, the lock-up should release and prevent the stall from happening. Might be a bad torque converter, or a bad lock up solenoid in the transmission... Before jumping to anything else, i'd try checking the fluid level in the transmission and an oil/filter change in the transmission. Lots of times one or the other can cure the problem.

Sounds like the torque converter clutch solenoid is bad. Unplug it and see if the problem stops. Unplug the 4 wire plug on the front of the transmission.

Truck stalls when I put the pedal to the floor going up hill

Do you have an manual or automatic transmission.
If it is a automatic is it down shifting when you are going up hill? If the transmission does not go in to a lower gear the engine will die down and end up stalling.
A weak fuel pump or a plugged fuel filter could also cause your problem. So could a bad cat or timing advance.
So next time you start up hill start by putting it in a lower gear. If this works have your A.T. Checked out.
But if it does not work see if when your truck is running does exhaust smell like rotten eggs. that would be a plugged cat. If you a timing problem you could have black smoke coming out of exhaust.
On a 2003 if you have not changed the fuel filter lately it would not hurt to do so. If you have a check engine light on some of the parts stores will do a free engine check for you. Let me know if you need INFO on changing a part or how to find a part.

Driving down hill check engine light came on. At

Defiantly check your timing belt first, there is a little hole on the side of the timing belt cover pop off the plug of the hole and have someone crank it for a second if the camshaft pulley does NOT move then it is definite. but if it does check to see if your getting gas, the gas pumps have known to go out quite often in this vehicle
