engine would stall while driving, i mean shut off completly, no backfire or any rough idling..off like a light...replaced coil..fired right up, got about 2 miles then it shut off again...but it would start right back up..drive a little bit, shut off again..canged spark plugs and now it doesnt even crank over, not even a clicking noise, but the gauges light up and the components move and functions like normal start up..my next move is to replace the electric module... and recheck my connections..any suggestions...getting ready to work on it in a few minutes

We are just about to have a 4th fuel pump put into this truck. We replaced the fuel pump in 2006 and again in 2009. Now, in 2015 yet again the fuel pump has to be replaced. Why? We do regular maintenance on this vehicle, although it isn't driven a lot. We never run the gas tank much below half. And we use stable for when it is just sitting in the garage. Is anyone else experiencing this kind of fuel pump issue with their 1998 Chev 3500 pickup?
