Sound,s like a fuel problem,it being random,check fuel filter and fuel pump.

Electrical issue in the computer circuit board? If the check engine light comes on, have a code reader check what the computer is telling you the problem is. If the fuel/air mixture gets too far out of balance, the engine will shut off to protect it and the smog systems.

    should my check engine light come on briefly when I start my truck then go off? I don't see it come on at all. Just wondering if I need to replace it, not sure how to replace it either.
