My pickup stalls randomly. I have a new fuel pump, distributor cap, rotor, spark plugs, battery, thermostat, spark plug wires, water pump, and a new fuel cap. It was put on a code checker and it came up as no codes. Somebody mentioned the crank sensor. How do you check that if it does not come up on the decoder, or is it something else
Do you
have the same problem?

When going slow in town it will stall. It did it 2 weeks ago and it has been fine since. Except this morning it started again. Most of the time it starts back up, but this morning it would start then quit then it wouldnt start so I left it a couple hours. It started up quit started quit and now its running fine.2 weeks ago when it did it we were going 60mph and it didnt stall but acted like it wanted to stall I had the cruise control on and it started to cut out but worked itself out.I have put 2 cans of sea foam threw it since then

Have you figured this out yet? My 95 Ram does the same thing. I found that when it is not running I do not have any spark. I have replaced the crankshaft position sensor, camshaft position sensor, asd relay, coil and computer but still do not have a spark. Mine started out acting like it was out of gas, it would stall when you stepped on the gas pedal and if you released the gas pedal it would recover but since then it has gotten worse. It now stalls at any time. It can be driving on the road at 70 mph or stopped at a red light it just dies. It usually starts back up after it has cooled off but not always.
