Question about 1988 GMC C1500
I've got a 1988 GMC 1500. It idles fine but when I push on the accelerator it sputters a bit and dies. I've already changed the fuel filter and spark plugs. I took off the distributor cap and cleaned the contacts and the rotor. I disconnected the fuel line from the carb and had a good stream of fuel (I don't have a test kit to check the actual pressure). I checked the readings across both injectors. They each read 1.6 ohms, which is a bit high (Haynes says they should be between 1.16 - 1.36 ohms), but since they both read the exact same I hoped they might be alright. I'd really appreciate any good ideas before I have to send it to a shop.
