Truck would sometimes not start, just crank over but no start. Replaced the cam position sensor and seams to have fixed the problem.

startsup runs at idle drive about 1/2 mile stalls sit for 5min starts up does it again changed fuel pump
drive for 2-3 days then stalls won't start for about 30-50 min then runs fine for 3-7 days don't know whats causing it
Occasionally when I have driven for 15-20 miles, shut it off, then when I am ready to go, it spins but never fires. Leave it for an hour and everything is good again. Replaced the fuel pump and the cam shaft position indicator, nothing.
