Its happened twice that while driving, my 5.4 just died. I wasn't low on fuel.
The truck restarted and is fine again. Any ideas?

Re: engine cuts off

Tune up & replace the fuel filter. Start cheap!

You didn't mention your miles or year of the vehicle. You can try scanning the vehicle for engine codes. The light may have popped on for a second or so and stored a code when you weren't looking. It won't hurt to check. Autozone in the US will do this at no charge.
