Well the condition seems to be getting worse, now it starting to idle kind of rough in park/neutral too. Tonight I went out to start the truck, let it get to operating temp and like i said it seemed to idle slightly crappy in neutral. I shifted into drive and after 30 seconds or so it sputtered, coughed, and died. but this time when I tried to restart it, it wouldn't start. It just cranked and cranked. I let the truck sit for a little over a minute and then it started right out.

I'm thinking that it flooded out and I'm starting to rule out torque converter. Could this be the sign of a failing coil, sending a weak spark and letting the engine flood out? Any other ideas? Thanks in advance.
