when i started my truck this morning it fired up, but then died almost instantly. then it started it and it stayed on, but almost died. weird! first time its happened. any ideas what it could of been?????
Could be just about anything, but first check to insure the battery is working so remove and have tested for free at any auto zone. If OK, an all connections are good an clean including the ground cable, then are you getting fuel pressure? when was fuel filter last changed? Or engine tuned up? Is there spark to the plugs? You need fuel, spark and compression to run. If all the simple checks fail then you need a good mechanic.
I have had this problem when we have an extreme temperature change, lets say 10 degrees to 60. I am not sure what part of ca you in, but condensation can cause an engine to stall due to the water moisture. Once it gets through or flushes out you should be fine.
