Question about 1989 GMC Sierra
If I press the accelerator pedal too far it will stall out. If I press it a little and wait for it, it will slowly rev up.
Hi 'm Peter, First of al have you tried tis with out the air filter in. Check to see if your air filter is dirty also you ma want to check the fuel filter , when was the last time were they changed? Both could be an indication of starvation of fuel or air. When you accelerate and you get to a point where the turbo can force enough air through then you pick up a little speed however you can also damage your turbo by sucking in the seals . The fuel problem could be it takes some time for enough fuel to get through the filter to speed the engine up. Once it picks up speed and you try to punch the throttle like you are going to pass someone does it bog down in a bit? If so you used up the reserve fuel in the line and now the pump has to play catch up The fuel filter is located in the center of the engine in a round housing so get your climbing gear on unless you have really long legs you will have to stand on something or get up in there reach it all. the top comes off the housing and the filter lifts straight out. It is possible you have a fuel line sucking air but unlikely like I said lets start with the simple stuff first Air filter then fuel filter. Then we can go from there hopefully you don't have a turbo gone bad or a stuck waste gate. Let me know what you find.

SOURCE: engine stalls when acceleration
sounds like poss throttle pos sensor prob./ could also be problem w/fuel pump not pumping enough fuel at high speed. poss fuel filter clogging also. have someone check pump pressure.

that is a tricky one you have almost replaced everything. that is fuel injected if you dont have the right fuel pressure when you step on the gas it will fall on its face you need to take a fuel pressure reading and also it could be as simple as the fuel filter which is often over looked it could be cloged restricting the flow. also check the MAP sensor
