When idling for extended periods, engine will die. Will restart and repeat issue several times, then runs fine. When issue started, turning off AC compressor would help, but now it has started doing it when AC is off. Just had oil change, replaced air filter, and tried a fuel injection cleaner to recent gas fill. Frequency of issue is increasing. What could it be?

Went to drive from a stop and heard clunk then it wouldn’t move. Goes into gear with and without clutch. When in gear it doesn’t move but the CV axles walking in its boot. The axle doesn’t move and the CV joints good. When looking where the axle goes into the tranny there’s two rings that move freely and sloppily. One of them has splines where the axle goes through it. What are those rings? Are they supposed to move or be stationary? And what is a possible cause and solution of this?

At the end of February I was in a small accident where I had to get some front end damage repaired. When it was repaired, the mechanics connected the fog lights on the truck, which I didn’t know I had and I have had the truck for 2 years. A few short weeks later both the battery and the alternator went out. When I picked up the truck it started right up and everything ran like normal. The next day however, the dashboard lights as well as the head lights were blinking when I started it up. I let it run for a few minutes to see if it stopped and it didn’t. The locks, cd player/radio and time display do not work but the windows do and the lights flash more when I press the window button up or down. So I turned off the truck, sat for a couple minutes and then started it again. I did this over and over until finally everything started normal. This process went on for a couple days and since the new parts were under warranty, I had them replaced again. Now with a new battery and alternator the issue is not as frequent but it is still happening and the mechanics cannot figure it out. Could this issue be caused by the fog lights being connected or is there a deeper electrical issue?
