85 Chevy k10 350 will stall out, then engine wont turn over until I wait for 1-5 minutes

Asked by Jul 11, 2016 at 09:30 PM about the Chevrolet C/K 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 1985 Chevy with a 350 was running fine until one day it randomly
stalled. I woke up for work and I went to start it and it quickly stalled out and
I couldn't get it to turn it over for about 45 seconds. Coming home from
work, my truck was about empty and I was taking a turn and it just stalled
out again. My radio, which is wired directly to the battery, was still on but
my engine just stalled out. I was on the side of the road for 2 minutes and if
I tried to crank the engine nothing would happen. It was like the battery was
disconnected. It eventually started back up and I filled the tank up, and
then 25 minutes later,the same thing happened....Ever since then I have
been riding it around my neighborhood rough and fast and I cannot get it to
do it again... any help please?
