When it stalls are you loosing spark or fuel psi? What codes are in the PCM?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

no codes coming up.i am trying to get a hook up for the fuel pressure gauge.can not tell on firing,it only does this running down the road.

Expert:  -Brad- replied 1 year ago.

When it stalls does it start right back up? If not spray some starting fluid in the breather and see if it start, if so then you have a fuel pump issue.. If not then you don't have spark..

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

the truck only does this while in motion going down the road.when making a left sharp turn and picks up and starts running again whitin a few seconds.runs o/k at idle,so i have no way to check the way you ask.i am still hooking up a fuel pressure gauge with a long hose so i can git it up out of the hood.then i can see the pressure wile driving.

Open the hood and start wiggeling wires.. If you turn left and it stalls you have a wiring issue...

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

the fuel pressure stays up fine when problem starts.pressure good

Did you find anything when you wiggeled the wiring harness under the hood while the engine is idleing?
