Engine Mechanical problem
2004 Ford F250 V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 115000 miles

Some times while driving my 6.0 powerstroke motor randomly stalls usualy this occours after driving 30 or so miles at 55 or over and then slowing down to 35 or less. Usualy I pull over shift to park the truck restarts imediatly and I drive away today the truck did it 4 times in about 2 miles and the last 2 times didnt start right away I was only 2 miles from home so I drove it home and parked it. Their is no engine code and the truck runs great otherwise

Is the engine a diesel? If it is, the problem could be " idle override" caused by lack of lubrication in the fuel. Low sulphur fuel does not have enough lubrication to lubricate the parts in the injection pump. There is an additive that you can use in every tank of fuel.
