2003 Duramax Stalling

About a month ago I was towing and at a stop light when the light turned green I gave it lite throttle and it died! I really did not expect it to restart but it did. Fast forward to today not towing pulling out of my daughters school it died on me twice but restarted both times?? 82k trouble free miles (except for that mega dollar leaking water pump)

Help?

Joe sounds like a bad fuel filter, how long since its been changed? how many miles? dose it run fine other than the stalling?

Caleb it has been about 15k miles, the last one put on was the new high micron that GM gave away for free.

15k yep thats where i would start, i change mine every other oil change (about 7000 miles) sometimes sooner due to poor performance due to a dirty fuel filter!

The filters are to small to start with and second they filter such small particals that 1 tank of dirty fuel will plug them right up!!!

Hope this helps!!

also, I usually put a plastic bag over the filter after I get it loose enough to pull off by hand so it doesn't spill all over.

The day before I was going to change the filter my truck would turn over but not fire. I have auto start and it has acted up before so I flipped the small switch under the dash to reset it no start. I have the Edge box puggedin under the hood and it has failed before also so I unplugged it, no start. I went to my shop to get some tools to change the fuel filter as suggested, I decided to try to start it, it started. I plugged the edge box back in and it started again no problem. so I changed the filter and it appeared to be aobut 90% dirty. If you forward your email address I have photos of the dirty 15k filter if you know how to post them?
My direct email is jwg65@bellsouth.net. So far it has started with no problems, going on an 8 hour round trip tomorrow. We shall see.

Oh yeah by the way the link fo rthe fuel filter replacement was great!! Took aobut 20 min to change. I did not bend the a/c line but I had a helper pull gently on the intercooler line to get the filter to slide by, worked fine. Hope I cannot hurt this big line by doing it this way??
the plastic bag did the trick too!!
