No one checks wires. Start the engine and start wiggling the wiring harness at different points. If it dies on you then you have found the general area to look. then you will have to go to wiggling one wire at a time. Time consuming at best, but not hard. Just a note, wires tend to start breaking right at the back of the plug

Truck shuts off while driving

Check the fuel pressure with a fuel pressure gauge, when the truck stops See if the fuel injectors are getting a pulse with a niod light plugged into the harness "while cranking. motor". IF you get no pulses (NO flashing noid light) see if the security light is ON, on the dash. If the security system "kicks on" it will kill the pulses to the injectors.

I have a 1995 acura integra it will crank sometimes, and when i drive it the car bogs down and cuts off will not crank untill it sits for awhile

Sounds like a Vapor Lock, check and see if the fuel line is exposed to the exhaust manifold heat any where. If not that it could be the fuel filter or trash in tank is being sucked up and stopping up your fuel line. Also sometimes the MAF Sensor can go crazy and cause all kinds of problems. You need to have Auto Zone to put it on a Computer and run a diagnostic test on it. Had a friend who rebuilt a wrecked Mustang and it would start and run a few seconds and then go dead. I helped him for a half day and we couldn\'t find the problem. Finally he pulled the intake off from the filter and a Wasp nest that had fallen down was being sucked against the MAF sensor and killing the engine. When the engine stopped it would fall off and let the engine start then suck it back up and kill the engine!

I wouldn\'t think you have a Wasp nest problem but crazy things happen.

My car kills when at idle. has low r/min at idle.

Check the Idle Air Ctrl (IAC) motor. It should allow air to bypass the throttle plate when starting and at idle. if it is not working it could cause veh. to stall.

96 Camaro Z28 with a V8 that intermitantly stalls while driving.

if it dies in a slow manner like fuel look at fuel pump AND relay. relays will get resistance build up and do weird stuff.Fuel pumps (especially gm)will get thermal breakdown(motor gets hot and decides to quit until cool off) If it is like you turned the key off and it rather violently stops--then that would be the module or coil or some ignition related area.
