Probably not timed properly. Stick a timing light on it and see where you're at. If not that, then your intake might not be sealed properly. Pour some soapy water on the intake where it joins to the head, and if it bubbles a lot when it's running, you have a leak. You torqued the intake in sequence... right?

Hi, this problem can be caused by a broken fuel pressure regulator diaphragm. With the engine running, remove the vacuum line from the regulator. If gas comes out of the regulator at the vacuum port, replace the regulator.

1984 F150 won't idle


It sounds to me like there is still a pretty good vacuum leak somewhere, and you should also check for any dis-connected or missing vacuum lines on the intake manifold, at the carburetor, and the large vacuum hose to the brake booster unit and the vacuum valve at the brake booster unit for any vacuum leaks or broken vacuum lines/hoses, and they can be hard to find because cracks in the vacuum hoses like to hide on the under-side of the vacuum lines/hoses especially the hard plastic ones. Also the carburetor could be loose or the carburetor base gasket could be damaged, the EGR valve gasket could be damaged, or the intake manifold gasket could be damaged, and these are all the most likely places to suspect a major vacuum leak.

89 suburban. No spray from injectors after replacing ESC


The fuel pump should be in the 20s. Also it could be losing presure slowly. Leave the fuel pump pressure gage on for at least 2 to 3 hours to see if it is losing pressure - It's a start

1980 F100 with a straight 6 cyl. Won't idle.


The vacuum comes from the intake manifold and ported vacuum comes from the carb above the throttle plate. You might have a leak at the carb gasket or intake manifold gasket. Spray some car cleaner or WD40 around the gaskets and vacuum lines while the engine is running and when you hear the idle speed up, you've found the leak. You will need to install the rebuilt carb first, and you should tighten any loose intake manifold bolts. Don't overtighten them. Also check the EGR valve because it could cause the engine to stall at idle. A good tune up might be needed too. I've seen some of those engines run real rough when the ignition timing was off.

Sounds like a fuel mixture/vacuum problem. Vacuum advance line on the distributor could be loose/leaking/collapsed.

Truck idles rough but at higher RPM runs fine. Checked codes and it is randomly misfiring on all cylinders. Also every now and then when changing gears revs up on its own and even at a stop engine revs up,...


Sounds like either the EGR valve is leaking ( if it is it will be very hot), or you have a serious vacuum leak, take a can of carb spray, and spray around the intake manifold and see if the idle smooths out if it does you will need to repair the vacuum leak, it could be a vacuum hose or the intake itself leaking.
