Could be the cap,plugs or wires but also could be the fuel pump ready to go. Best thing to do is check for fuel and spark when vehicle starts to act up this will determine what's causing your problem.

    My truck will start and when I give a little gas it stays running but when I let off the pedal it shakes and then dies. A few people say it's the fuel pump but if it not what else could it be?
