1986 Ford Bronco dies once it is put into gear

Usually idles fine when in park, but will usually die once you put it into gear. Once you get past idle speed it runs fine but still doesn't repond like it should. Have replaced plugs, fuel pump, fuel filter, cleaned carburetor,, timing seems to be ok as well

Sounds like a fuel mixture/vacuum problem. Vacuum advance line on the distributor could be loose/leaking/collapsed.

The engine sputters and dies when it heats up. Is this Vapor lock? On cold start it works great and idles just fine but as it heats, the engine starts choking and soon dies out. If this is vapor lock, how...


sounds like the reason it starts and idles fine at start up is your choke is functioning... as your vehicle warms up.. the choke starts to kick off... Inspect your throttle body and idle control motor.
