Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
There are quite a few things that can cause the engine to die. If it's dying abruptly then you're most likely losing spark. Lost spark could be caused by the coil, cam or crank sensor, the ASD relay, powertrain control module and wiring.
The most likely cause for abrupt dying is a failing crank sensor, assuming the fuel gauge and voltmeter don't drop when the engine dies.
The firs step in diagnosing the problem is to see if any fault codes are setting. Do you know if any codes are setting?

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
