    I have a 2005 3.0 liter, extra cab. with 107,000 miles, I have owned it for 14 months. It is in very good condition.

    This has happened twice in the past 8 months. I drive around town for a while, maybe 20 minutes up to an hour. Then I stop for a few minutes, like some shopping for a few items at the market.

    I go to start the truck and it wants to start. It gets going, running very slow, like on 3 cylinders, just for 10-15 seconds. Then it stalls. you know that feeling where you want to play with the gas pedal to get it going, but it just stalls.

    I left the truck sitting for a few hours and then tried again. It started right up both times.

    I have not had a chance to check anything out, but it still runs fine. The only problem is that it idles rough. I put new plugs, air and fuel filters when I bought it 14 months ago.

    anyone have any ideas???

    thanks frank
