    It just dies with no sputtering and then I just have been sticking it in neutral and starting it back up again...Also, it does it when the car is all warmed up.. I might think it would do it just because I have not given it proper time to warm up but that is not the case... oil pressure and temp all look fine. thanks for the responce...

    Does it have an Edelbrock carburetor on it? I'm being serious....I've got an Edelbrock 1407 (750CFM) on mine and it's miserable on anything bumpy.....stalls, sputters, etc. And when I'm actually trying to climb hills offroad.....it's a total "flood fest".....more stalling and flooding.

    They make an "offroad kit" which supposedly helps, and it's cheap (like $15) you could also have someone who knows about carbs check the float levels to make sure they're not out of whack.

    It's likely something electrical as stated.

    I also have an Edelbrock carb (1405), and I've found it totally reliable offroad, even on steep low-4 climbs. I recently lowered the floats 1/16", but just as a precaution. I like the simplicity of the Edelbrock.

    My truck was dieing when it was hot. It turned out to be the ignition switch and the plug into the back of the switch.
