1991 GMC TBI 350 sierra stalls bad

I have a 1991 GMC Sierra 350 5.7L. It runs really really rough on start up, when the weather is warner it runs better, not good, just better. I have replaced plugs, wire, pick up coil, ignition coil, rotor and fuel filter. I am stumped on this one, i usually am pretty good at working on vehicles, but i am at a loss of ideas. I have heard that it could be your Oil Pressure Sensor, retarding your firing? After i warm it up it will not run that bad but off the jump it does, for example when i take off onto the highway from the access road i have to punch it because if not it will bog down bad and accelerate and a very minimal speed. HELP

Could be the TPI Sensor or it might be a touch out of timing.

My 19991 GMC Sierra 5.7 litre engine runs great when its cold but after 5 minutes it is very slow in accelerating . When I take off first thing in the morning I could easily smoke the tires but as soon as...


while motors warm up the computer supplies information so the motor works well. After it warms up the computer is guided by sensor information. It sounds like a sensor is going bad. Try to get a scanner reading which might show which sensor. The two main imputs to fuel are oxygen sensor and temperature sensor. Real common for O2 sensor to go bad.

Rough idle and accelleration in my 89 GMC truck with a 350 TBI


Try a new distributer cap and rotor button,these are notorious for wearing out the carbon pick-ups and leaving carbon tracks in the cap which messes up the fireing order.If that does'nt fix it try plugs and wires.
