    I have a 1989 GMC PU and the eng jumps when I accelerate, like going up a hill. It will smooth out after you let up on peddle.

Im having the same issue I believe. I have a 94\' Chevy 1500 and when i accelerate it will jerk like the gas has cut out but it wont stall. It just jerks and slows me down. It only seems to do it when going up a hill. I feel like it could be the fuel pump or possibly some intake gaskets?

3.1 1993 lumina starts fine as it warms up it starts skipping and then cuts off. stalls and will not crank until it cools off

Unplug the temperature sensor and see what happens. If no change then the temp sensor plug maybe plugged somewhere it should not be. Sometimes it isb possible there are missmatched sensor connectors.
