i have th esame thing in cold weather the truck stalls out when you stop or slow down to a crawl until it warms up
Very random. Truck sometimes dies when you apply the brake regardless of whether your going 70mph or 35mph. Only when temperatures below 10 degrees fahrenheit. Very very dangerous, especially around curves and intersections.
throttle body froze up on winter drive.
