Truck would just stop running after a few minutes would start back up, finally it quit starting at all. Replaced battery, sensor on top of battery and ignition switch still won't start.

Hi,

What you described sounds like a faulty crankshaft position sensor. Here is what I want you to try: See if it starts for a couple of seconds using starting fluid. If it does, then we know it's a fuel-related issue. If there is no chance, then suspect its ignition related.

If there is no change with starting fluid, follow this link and check for spark to the plugs. Let me know what you find.

Let me know the results.
