Issue / Question:
The truck starts and runs perfectly for ten miles, but when I slow down, it starts sputtering, sometimes backfiring, then dying. If I just wait for an hour, it will start again and run perfectly. I have replaced every gadget under the hood that can be replaced, I think.

Answer:
I have seen the square box ignition control modules cause this.
