My truck keeps dying after I start it,  as soon as I let off the gas it dies.  it only does it during cooler weather.  I was told to check the cold start sensor or voltage regulator.  I've replaced plug wire, plugs, distributor cap and button.  I don't know what to try next.  Every time it take it to mechanic it won't die on them.  lol  this sucks
