Readjust the choke to make sure you do not have it too lean or too rich and change the fuel filter

I have 305 4 barrel in my 86 oldsmobile cutlass supreme, Im thinking there is something wrong with my choke. Sometimes it idles great when it runs for a while but when I took it for a drive up the road...

First inspect choke linkage to see if it is binding or sticking closed when engine is warm. You can spray with WD-40 to help it work more freely. If the carb has a round plastic housing over the choke spring check to see if it has three rivets holding it in place. If it has screws you can loosen the screws and turn the housing slightly to put less tension on the choke butterfly. If it has rivets, drill them out and replace with screws that fit the holes. In the summertime you can probably set a Q-jet carb all the way lean and still have enough fuel to start cold with a couple pumps on the throttle.

Possible Choke

it would have been helpful if you stated the year of the car but it sounds to me like it is the fuel filter or the fuel pump
