Having problems with your 1996 Chevrolet K3500 ?

My truck stops running going down the road, it is not the alternator, I just replaced that. I replaced the fuel filter and air filter. I put Power Service in it. It does not do it everytime I use. It is a 6.5 Turbo Diesel. If I catch it in time and put it in neutral and step on the accelerator it will catch and stay running. Any ideas as to what it could be?

Engine runs smooth but at times it will shut off completely but then within seconds it will catch back up and be running again. Sometimes too it wont start until about the 5th time you turn it over.

Keeps stalling Feels like I am running out of gas. First felt like the Rav started to "hick-up", then stalled out as I was coming to a stop. Now seems to happen almost every time I try to come to a stop or take my foot off the accelerator. I have to put in neutral and rev the gas to keep engine running. Engine light is now on since the first stall out. Fuel filter has been replaced and problem still persists. AutoZone site suggests changing the wire set and spark plugs or possibly the fuel pump.

Hi everyone. I have a 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT, and we recently had the torque converter replaced because it started to run really rough in drive and most of the time it would stall as soon as it was put into drive. Well, it was diagnosed as a torque converter issue, so we had that replaced at the dealer under our Lifetime Extensed Warranty, and now since they've replaced it, it runs perfectly fine in Drive, but when it's in Park, Neutral, and especially Reverse, it shakes very badly.

I have a 1995 GMC Suburban 6.5L Turbo diesel. I converted it to run on used fryer oil. I now have 2 separate fuel systems, each with it own tank, pump and filter. This past winter, the car stalled just after starting, while running on diesel. I could not restart it. I put the car in a garage, charged the battery and got the car to start on fryer oil. I was told that the fuel was gelled. I added an anti gelling (cetane boost?) additive and some gas. Shorty thereafter, I stopped using the

Runs rough. Plugs, wires, cap, rotor, timing all accounted for. Fuel filter replaced but not stopped up. No trouble codes. So, assuming all sensors working properly. Fuel leaks over the top of the one of the plugs on the TBI. Like it's coming right out of the wiring harness. It leaks over the side and goes down in to the "bowl". I think it is flooding out... Causing the "rough" running. Also, the truck idles up enough to "bark" the tires every time I put it in gear. ?!?!
