This morning, my truck died at a stop light. It works just fine when I keep the RPMs up, but when I stop or idle, the engine dies. Is this something to do with the fuel system? Ive never had a major problem before and Im scared to even try driving it right now because I don't want to make the problem worse. Thanks.

Hi there, the idle speed is controlled through the ECU and an idle control motor, check for any vacuum leak and unresolved fault codes with a scan, if all ok have the idle control motor check out.
