there is something wrong with the it. It keeps on puttering then dying out. Could it be the fuel pump or the fuel filter?

  1. First thing to do would be to extract the check engine codes. This can be done yourself. Here is how: http://www.freeautomechanic.com/diagnostictroblecodes7.html

    It isn’t likely a fuel filter or pump. If it was it would idle fine and only when you give it gas(while moving) the engine would bogg way down and have no power. It would not putter and die.

  2. the truck is back to normal, that was the first time of doing that. Could it start all over again later in life? What should I do too prevent it from happening again?

    This will tell you stored codes as well. This is the best place to start.
