Truck seems to run and idle fine.but sometimes
stops, shuts off when I come to a complete stop.
Starts right back up. What is causing this and how

Tis the season for idle air controll motors. When you stop the iac is supposed to slowly bring the engine to a normal idle speed. If it is sticking then you may have a situation where there is no air getting to the motor. If this is the cause they aren't too terribly expensive to replace, you could also try cleaning the throttle body with carb cleaner to help.
