99 silverado dies out

my 99 silverado dies out when youare going down the road for no apparent reason. I have a 6.0 engine with about 68000 miles on it. It looks as if it shuts down momentarily and then you can crank it right up. I had the fuel filter and the fuel pump replaced about 10000 miles ago. Would appreciate any help on this matter. Thanks

I had an older GMC work van that did the same thing for about 6 months. It got worse so I decided to take it to a shop, it died on the way and had to be towwed in. Cranked right up at the shop and everything tested good. With my explanation of symptoms, he replaced the pick up coil and module. I don't know which or both were bad but that cured the problem.

Thanks I'll check into it. I was told possibly a bad egr valve. I'll check into both of these possible solutions.
