truck dies

Got a 95 and when driving mostly over bumps it is like someone has an on off switch that is flipped a few times then will be fine again. Some times when going slow or not on the throttle it will die and usually starts right back up sometimes though it will fire amd die and I need to hold it to the floor for a sec or 2. Guessing it has to be electrical of some sort a loose wire but where

Re: truck dies

When it starts back up again, does the WTS light come on?

When it quits, do you notice if the tach and/or speedometer needles drop to zero?

Re: truck dies

I have not noticed but will look when I get back to it. Well I floor it so when it fires it will rev up other wise it will run for half a second then die again but rev up and will usually stay running
