I have a dudge trucuk 318 2 barrel 1986 i:ve changed plugs wires distrubuter cap rotary button coil fuel pump fuel filter still has a skipping to it like its not getting gas

check the fuel pressure and the float level as it may be too low or trying to flood the engine . check for vacuum leaks in all hoses.. Check that the carby is tight on the manifold.

sounds like the float is sticking or may have a hole in it, you can try adding some automatic transmission fluid to the gas - sometimes works if it sticking,check for a vaccume leak - but usually won't overfuel with a leak- but has happend.

Try some fuel inj. cleaner. If the problem doesn't go away, it is probably the cat. converter or something else.

find the idle control motor on top of the engine and remove it, most times you can clean it with throttle cleaner sold at auto parts. and if that does not work replace it.

Has the fuel filter been service in the past 30K, if not you should replace it. Also, check the fuel pressure and let me know. Could be a fuel pump issue.
Let me know.

Don't know if it applies to your diesel but most later gas engined vehicles have a 'cold start' valve that supplies additional fuel to the fuel/air mix along with boosting the idle speed until some warming of the engine is sensed.
