Also the turning signals work when they want to. Looks like left signal is wired straight to the turning signal shifter. News to know gap on plugs.I've heard 35 and 60. Set at 35 now. This is a 1500 4x4 5.7 liter 350 small block engine

Shut off and stalls out are the same

i would look for vacuum leak at base of the throttle body

Understand. More like hesitates in drive at light. Have to give it a little gas while pushing brake pedal.I've looked for leaks there and replaced a few vac lines. But ill double keep check. But it is worse in reverse. That's when it shuts off
