    well, I think you meant to say your "truck " is stalling, have you checked for vacuum leaks? thats usually what causes that. all the vacuum lines good, gasket under the throttle body, egr sticking open. need to go around everything carefully with a propane torch unlit and see if it revs up in certain areas, and NO SMOKING while doing this!
