IT STARTED KILLING OCCASSIONALLY AT STOP LIGHTS AND ALWAYS STARTS BACK UP RIGHT AWAY. NOW IT WILL KILL AS I'M DRIVING ALONG BUT STARTS UP AS SOON AS I FEATHER THE THROTTLE. IT ALSO SEEMS TO RUN A LITTLE ROUGH FOR A SHORT TIME AFTER IT KILLS.
Do you
have the same problem?

In my case, probably yes. I'm hoping the 2carpros respond to my. In the meantime, I'm trying to find a used PCM. Does your truck puff any black smoke during its kill/restart transition?
