    I have the EXACT same problem with my '87 Chevy 1/2 ton 4x4 350! Someone told me it might be the MAP sensor? Haven't checked into it yet. Something else I noticed this past week when driving down the interstate to work, it seems like it doesn't have much power until I hit an incline, then it seems to take off and have power like it should, but as soon as I get on flat ground or go down hill again, power is lacking. Not a clue what would be causing this! Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!! Thanks!

Clean the throttle body and replace the idle air control(IAC) motor. The IAC has 4 stages, sounds like it lost the first stage.

1994 chevy pickup won't start

If you listen closely when you first turn the key to the "run" position, you should be able to hear the fuel pump cut in for a few seconds, and then stop. If you can hear it, then it's okay, and your problem is elsewhere. Make sure you have spark. Use a timing light to check. If you can't hear it, check your fuses, both inside the cab, and under the hood. Check to see if there is power to the fuel pump. Chances are it is a faulty fuel pump, but you want to make sure that's what it is before you start, because it can be a filthy job. There isn't a drain, you'll have to syphon as much as you can, and lower the tank with a floor jack. If there is an engine light on, borrow a scan tool and it will save you a lot of time and money. Good luck.

use a crab spray in the throttle body and clean the black carbon right before the intake of the throttle plate.
take off the intake tube and have someone else open and close the throttle with the engine off of course.spray all the black stuff aronud the throttle plate or butterfly plate and make it nice and clean in there.use a very clean cloth rag .

hope this helps.
