I own a 1998 xcab 4x4 chevy. Yesterday I was driving it and it was running
good but when I pulled into town I parked it, left it running and ran into a
building, when I came out after about 2 minutes it had stalled. I got in
and started it (no problem) drove it about 1000 yards and it stalled again.
Started it again (little hesitant) and drove it home. In the driveway it
stalled again a couple of times.
It seems to be idleing at 500 - 700 rpms. Am afraid of a huge repair bill.
Was wondering if it could be something like the oxygen sensor or fuel
filter. I understand the fuel filter is a beast to change and very
Thanks for your help
The fuel filter is easy. under the driverside frame rail.

But, as bad as it sounds, remove the battery cables and clean the corrosion
90% chance that will fix it.
If the posts are very clean and it still acts up, especially in heat, the
ignition module has been known to act up. Remove and replace it several
times to clean the contacts, and if that fails to cure it, you might invest
in a new one. Do you have any codes showing ?..........
