Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When warmed up the truck will stall sometimes when your foot is off of the gas and you're coasting. It always starts right back up but it's freaking me out.

Let's try some general maintenance things first. Check air filter and clean throttle body replace fuel filter if have not done so in a while add Lucas Fuel Injector Cleaner to gas tank.

clean air intake at maf sencer,butterfly it some times binds & coolent senser, if the engine gets to hot it shuts down,but a defective coolent censer is defective it shuts down at low idle. allso check crank censer
