First you add octane booster to two year old gas. It is too late for stabil. Find the idle air solenoid and take it out and clean it with throttle body cleaner. Try not to push it in or out. Reinstall and turn on key for I min. and off for 1 min. then start the car.

If your vehicle has one, and I think it does, check your EGR system. If the egr valve is full of carbon, it can be partially open, creating a vacuum leak. If the egr valve solenoid is bad, it could be opening the valve at the wrong time, also creating a vacuum leak. Unplug the egr vacuum hose, plug the open end of the hose and start it and see what it does. A picture of the egr is below.

Transmission wont shift to second gear


The vacume hose on the vacume modulater on the trans mission is nt hooked to full engine vacume or the engine isn't making vacume.The governer will make the trans shift to second anyway at redline but it's preety hard on an old car to redline it just to find out/ It's possible that youv'e got the shift detent cable that hooks to the carb set too tight or it's stuck as if it's floored. with the cable disconnected it should shift out al the way real early as long as thirs vacume on the modulater. Gas mileage freaks that drive around slowly unhook th shift cale so the trans shifts into high gear real early. Not much for passing and acceleration but they get a little bit better gas mileage.

Truck want to shut off when i give it gas when running


Tough one to try to fixe over the internet... my first impression would be air leak on the intake, or a fuel pressure issue.. or even maybe a really bad air filter, youve ellimnated spark issues with good idle, and replaced everything that adjusts fuel mixture.. it sounds like a simple problem right under your nose, dont give up!!

it sounds like the its not getting enough gas to stay running. try looking for vacum leaks with a propane torch going over all the vacum lines with the FLAME OUT but the troch on when it is idling. if the idle goes up at any time when the torch passes over a line than you have found your leak and replace the line. even if you have one line bad keep going over all of them. and if there is no vacum leaks than start the engine and let it idle for about ten minutes, shut the engine off and take all the plugs out. if any of them are wet with gas than you have a spark problem and then begin going over your cap, rotor, wires, and points.
