1988 Ford F150.. When I give it gas, it hesitates for a couple of seconds &, all the sudden, it acts like it catches up & I get too much gas at once. It's killing me in gas mileage

The problem is most likely a dirty or malfunctioning Intake Air Control Valve, which is located on the throttle body assembly and should be cleaned every year or two as regular maitenance.

Hi i have a 1988 ford f150 it idles up and down and always smells like gas also when you floor it or tap the gas after idling for a while black smoke comes out the tail pipes. i'm so sick of it running...

Check fuel pressure regulator by removing the vacuum hose. If idle does not change or fuel comes out of regulator replace it. Otherwise check your injectors one at a time while car is running. If idle does not change replace it.

What is wrong with 88 F-150 when it won't run on front gas tank , will run a short time, then quit, replaced pump, still same thing.

Try checking the tank selector valve under the truck in the back by the tanks, it might be bad or not operating right, or have it checked.
