So Fargo is in the middle of a snow storm and I had to drive 6 miles home. We've got 6-7 in of snow on the ground and up to 14 in drifts. On my way back I couldn't help but hit several drifts...either that or the other car. On one of them I noticed my truck started sputtering pretty bad, like it was missing. I've had this issue before when the truck got wet (like going through a puddle.) I'm assuming that is most likely attributed to water getting under the dist cap because it has lost it's seal...been meaning to get around to that. Well I continued driving, hoping it would dry itself out and be back to normal like it usually does when this issue happens. About 100 yards down the road I hear a huge clunk/bang under the hood and my truck dies out and stalls, cel came on. It is now completely dead. The truck will crank, but it won't turn over. I am going to let it sit over night and look at it in the morning and check if I have any spark and start there. I'm kind of puzzled about the loud bang. I know I don't have too much information, and no codes, but does anybody have an idea of where to start or maybe brainstorm what could have caused this? I know you need more info...but you guys have pulled good stuff outta your a**'s before. Thanks.
My truck did the same thing, just a random bang and stalled but it started right up afterwards while still rolling. My pickup sensor in the distributor was going bad causing a random misfire and stall.
Still pull the codes and check over everything under the hood.

A question that sometimes drives me hazy: am I or are the others crazy?
I had my truck do the exact same thing minus the clunk/bang noise. After i went through a big puddle of water last week about 100 feet down the road it just died. Would not crank but would turn over. Got to looking and i blew number 9 fuse under the hood. Which is the powertrain control module. Replaced and i got another 100 ft down the road. Blew again this time i had to let it sit awhile cause i had no more fuses. ( the big fuses) after i got some put one in and made it home and have not blown a fuse yet. Something to do with the water i went through.
Alright I pulled codes. KOEO showed 522...trans was in neutral. Continuous codes showed 172, 332, and 556. 172: O2 sensor, 332: EGR did not open, and 556: fuel pump relay primary circuit fault.
So from those, can anybody point me in the right direction? I am planing on replacing my O2 sensor today and clean the EGR. Anybody know how to approach the 556? My front tank (the only tank I use) primes when I put the key into the on position.
