Starts fine, then dies while idling

Truck started doing this a few weeks ago. It happens occasionally. I start the truck, let it idle for a few seconds, put it in gear and while coasting, (no pressure on the pedal) the truck will sputter and die. Sometimes it fires right back up and is fine, other times it takes a little throttle work to get it started. What do you guys think it is? It happens in the morning after the truck has set for awhile. I would say it occurs about 1 out of 4 mornings that it is started. Fuel filter has about 6k miles on it.

I have this problem...I start the truck and it will idle for 20 or 30 seconds and then die. This started happening after I changed the fuel filter. I though maybe it was air in the injector I bled them..but it is still happening. Anybody have any idea?
Thanks for the tip...I lost my internet connection for a while and just now found my post.. I have not gotten to try what you have suggested...but I will do it and see... it is driving me nuts... I mean.. once it dies..I can start it again and everything is fine.. until I let it sit for a while.
