Question about 1985 Chevrolet C1500
It's backfiring. This can be caused by a vacuum leak. If a vacuum hose falls off or wears out and leaks it will cause a lean condition that will cause the engine to backfire. If your not familiar with cars this should be a cheap fix.

Its either the timing of the distributor OR the accelerator pump in the carby as it must squart petrol in a fraction before the engine accelerates
if not then like yours it sucks in air and the engine pops back in the carby ( and its been known to catch fire) so do it now as with out enging going air cleaner off and look in the top and see if it squarts fuel in straight away and no delays.
Let me know how you get on Ron
