A few weeks ago, I was idling at a red light, and the truck just shut off. It was an instant shut off, not like when you actually turn off the key and the motor turns 1 or 2 more times. It was INSTANT. It did it 2 more times that day, and hasn't done it since.

What can do this? My best guess was the TC locked up, but I really have no idea.

That happen to me, and it was the shutoff solenoid. The cheapest one i found was on ebay for $150. You can also make a braket to bolt on to put a choke cabel on it. Thats a real cheep fix, but will allow it to stay running when the key is off.

Cool, thanks guys, I was afraid it was my TC locking up or something. I knew there was a chance it was the solenoid but it just didn't feel right.

I'll check it out when I get back in 6 months lol.
