The first failure occurred with ~125,000 miles on the truck. Had to slowly pull vehicle over shoulder of road. There was no shoulder to move over to.

A 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission or 6-speed manual overdrive transmission were available as options. When attempting to break, after realizing something was wrong, extremely hard to break.
Pulled over to the side of the road, attempted to restart truck and it did. The problem only occurs whenever I'm light on the accelerator of just coasting.
