going down the road it runs fine, but when i stop at a stop sign, it will sometimes die on me unexpectedly.
whenever I start the engine it runs good but after it warms up, every time I come to a stop sign or red lights it idles and sometimes kills the engine
When the engine gets warmed up and im drivin everytime from 1st to 5th gear it wants to bog when I accelerate ive changed the fuel filter spark plugs wires distributor cap and even put cleaner in my gas tank but it still continues to bog down
Stalls on warm starts, especially at higher altitudes.

Will lift hood, let engine cool (10-30 minutes), and then engine starts fine.

Engine does not idle rough, or stall at stop lights/signs.
When the engine is cold it idles fine and runs fine,about after a minute it starts to have a surging idle. At about 2000 rpm the engine feels heavy but once its over 3000 ,it feels as if something was clogged
this truck star very well when is engine cold , but when reach working temperature about 15 minutes engine running become stall and burn a lot of fuel and die I'll appreciate any help
when truck gets hot it idles rough and dies when i stop going along down the road runs fine?
When engine is warm and leaving a stop, the engine will surge and make the car lunge and sometime the engine will stop running
The car fine till he replace the radio with a better one. We have replaced the Air Flow valve, spark plugs, fuel filter , the coolant sensor (both parts) and new antifreeze. He is now checking the gage in the spark plug. The will start but it won't stay running it acts like it is starving for gas
