Welcome to fixya

this sounds like the timming you might have to advance it a liitle bit so the car wil idle

loosen the dist cap and turn it clock wise a little bit get someone to start the car and let it run and turn it slowly untill it will idle on its own

only other thing can thing of is might have a bad fuel filter

hope this helps out have a good day

99 chevy silverado Unstable idle when it worms up

Check the engine mountain rubbers ,, one or more of them is broken and needs to be replaced.

pop the hood, start the vehicle and move it from park to drive to reverse with the brake pedal down and you will see the engine moving. the broken mounting rubbers are the cause for this.
