The only obvious thing that happens when the truck dies is that the fuel pump doesn't turn on. All accessories, gauges work and motor cranks. Like I said, turning the ignition on and off 3 or 4 times fixes it every single time. One other notable thing is that sometimes when I turn the truck off, the fuel pump sometimes runs for a long period of time after shutting off (once it ran for 45 minutes). But the motor dieing and the fuel pump acting weird only happens 2 or 3 times a week, and doesn't seem to die more often when the trans isn't shifting.
I haven't noticed anything that doesn't work when the trans won't shift. My biggest problem is, I work in the oil field and am away from home for weeks at a time so the repairs have to be done in a shop and I can't do much to my truck. I'm mostly trying to avoid unneeded labor costs. (Fixing the ECM, but then I have to fix the ignition instead or vice versa)
Also forgot to mention, when the trans shop ran the codes, three faults came up: Solenoids(replaced), Ignition, and ECM.
Any further insight would be greatly appreciated.
EDIT: One more thing, would like to give Jack some feedback, but I don't have any points to give. : How do I go about showing my appreciation?
