While driving down the road my truck randomly dies then starts again. If I'm stopped it dies, when putting it into gear it dies. I don't know what's going on. Can someone please help me?

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

If stopped the only way to keep it
running is to keep the engine revved.

Throttle positioning sensor located on the throttle body or on the breather depending on which model you have

Hm, maybe vacuum leak? I would check for that because if it stalls at idle but runs fine when revved, I would check for a vacuum leak first thing.
