Start by giving the vehicle a tune-up. New spark plugs/wires, replace filters: air, oil and fuel. If problem still persists, then you have a timing issue.

Could be missing on acceleration which means that the throttle position sensor may be bad.

Try scanning the system for stored codes.

And, go from there.

Raceing idle

Hi Terry
yes you are right, your previous work caused the problem.
look for a disconnected vacuum hose somewhere from/to the manifold or throttle body, do visual check first with engine off, if you didn't see any disconnected hose, start up the engine and follow the hissing noise.
Good Luck

1992 Chevy Camero RS - will idol but when you give it gas it stalls. We replaced everything including the fuel pump.

The ignition timing is not advancing at higher rpm.

That is the job of the ECM (Electronic control module).

Inspect / replace the ECM.
