Have you had your battery checked?

Sounds like ur starter is going bad


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
