Would like to know if you have any info. On the engine just shutting off. You will be driving along and it will just shut off, then you might sit there for a few minutes and it will start right up and run just fine. You will know if it is going to start or not because if the "wait to start" light comes on it will start(diesel). I had it to a dealer but they said unless the engine light was on that they wouldn't be able to find the problem without a lot of searching. The engine light only comes on if it doesn't start, but by the time I would get it towed to garage and wait til they could look at it the truck would start right up and the engine light would be off. It only seems to do this in the winter time. Any info. Would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Bud

You could try hooking up a fuel pressure gauage and allow to run will put a load under it or place ing one on when your start light doesnt come on it sounds like the pump is getting hot and shuting down or posable bad wire lead to pump or around releys, fues's
