Sounds like your timing chain has jumped time.

My starter was changed less than a year ago but will change the battery. Can it be the timing chain when the truck was running fine and stalled as I went to give it gas after stopping at a stop light that's the last time it ran

Water. Dry gas. Then high octaine gas
