Hi! Have you tried checking the spark plugs and fuel filter? The plugs may be full of carbon and needs to be cleaned or best if replaced. It may be burning fuel poorly thats why it stumbles during accelerations. Please check the Fuel filter too for it may be clogged by dirt and rust giving the engine lack of fuel supply. Hope this helps and have a good one!

Idles, floods under acceleration/throttle movement


The TBI unit is going to be the route of your problem. Clean and inspect the insides of the unit. Next to the injector is the fuel pressure regulator. Either the injector pressure regulator has failed and is leaking, the o-ring that seals the regulator to the TBI has failed, or because of age and time. The housing itself has oxidized or cracked and is letting fuel leak into the throttle body. There are many different ways that the TBI unit can fail. An unmetered amount of air getting into the engine, low or no fuel pressure, or throttle linkage was sticking or broken, then there would be other symptoms. You provided a great description and list of symptoms. Please, when you have time, take a closer look at the TBI unit and let me know. If you have any other questions please write back and I'll do my best, good luck.

You would need to figure out if the problem is too much air or not enough fuel.
The carb has three internal circuits - - idle, cruise, and accelerate.
Fuel flows thru each circuit from the bowl to the venturi.
You could have a vac leak that is allowing too much air to enter the intake, or the idle circuit on the carb may not be adjusted correctly after the engine warms up.
Or it could be something else.

Fuel problems


I wouldn't replace the injectors, especially not all 6 or 8.
The problem is probably a lack of fuel or fuel pressure, or a dirty throttle body.
The computer controls idle speed with the idle air control valve by limiting the amount of air entering the throttle body. If the body is dirty the air passages can be blocked.
I would take another look at the throttle body and check the fuel pressure.

Missing and stumbling during acceleration


4.2 ltr missing. 2000 truck, f150. Changed plugs, wires. Ran great for 2 weeks. Started again. Changed coils. Got worse. Changed fuel filter, did nothing. Added injector cleaner and fuel cleaner, nothing. Checked EGR, o.k. It is getting worse. Had new gas about the time it all started.

Fuel pump is most likely the cause. Probably just barely making the required pressure to start. Needs to maintain 60-66 psi while cranking to start.
