While driving, a loud bang is heard from the engine compartment. When this is heard, the engine quits running and I have to coast and stop on the side of the road. If I try to restart the engine with the ignition switch in the on position, the starter will run and the truck acts like its' out of gas. But if I turn the ignition switch fully to off and then turn to start, the truck will start and run. This has happened to me twice during highway driving. The engine does not run rough before or after each incident.

Truck runs fine gets warm shuts down and won't run untill it cools down got fire from coil and distibator to plugs got power to injectors and got fuel smells like its flooding.pulled plugs wet with fuel

It seems as though there is air in the system, the shop put a new radiator in and this problem is occuring, cant take it back because it was 6 months ago when they replaced it. Since then I have replaced the thermostat, and the problem still exist. They did change the heater control valve as well when they did the radiator replacement. And yes it does not heat up for a long while even when the gage saids hot the heater blows cold air. After running for maybe 5 miles it will get warm. Now should my fan run all the time or should it turn of sometimes? It constantly runs.

Would the "boots" be a part of the standard ball joint replacement job? One place tells me the joints are OK and I need the boots replaced. Another says I need to do both, at a higher cost ($600). I see where the boots are ripped and need to be replaced, but I'm not sure about the joints.

Thanks for the guidance.
