86 el camino stalls under load


As mentioned above, engine could be starving for fuel; but
also consider ignition system - as engine makes more power, maximum cylinder pressures increase. A higher spark voltage is then needed to ignite mixture (at a few degrees before top dead center... top of piston travel).
If coil is weak, plugs fouled, or plug gap too wide, adequate spark may not occur. This may cause missing,
loss of power, sometimes backfiring (backfiring may occur if timing is off, or intake valve leaky, also). If you replace the fuel filter, 'kit' the carb, but problem remains,
look to ignition system.

Diagnostic process - put a fuel pressure gauge in line, where fuel line enters carb. Rig so can see gauge, while driving. Have a passenger watch fuel pressure as you drive; especially while accelerating. If fuel pressure drops during acceleration, then its either fuel pump or filter. If pressure remains stable, consider carb issue.
If possible, test with exhaust gas analyzer, while engine
under load (possibly at an emissions test place). If lean under acceleration, its a carb problem. If not, look at
ignition system (emission test diagnostics should help here, also). Oh, and one thing I did once.... forgot to release parking brake..... duh.

Best of luck !

94 GMC Suburban. Replaced intake manifold, now runs poorly.


You may not have sealed the manifold correctly,mistakes like using the rear and front rubber seals can cause this instead of a bead of silicone. To check for intake leaks spray carb spray along the intake gasket to see if the engine changes tone or idle speeds, if it does you have a leak,.

1986 suburban k20 454 ok took out fuel filter replaced with new and had trouble tightnign bolts back in then it leaked ok tighted it until it didnt leak then it started running rough whats the problem


Is this carb?Or throttle body injected?If it is carb,then the fuel filter may be in backwards,the hole in the filter points outward toward the fuel line,you most likely crushed the filter.

My car backfires through carb from dead stop acceleration, what may be the cause?


wrong ignition timing, low fuel pressure or burn valve.
check your fuel pressure, ignition timing and check engine compression

Sounds like you have a vacuum leak somewhere causing the engine to flood.Check all hoses coming fron intake manifold.
