Hello
The engine and automatic transmission in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

It could be the filter. Has the fuel been changed after storage? I would also thing the Carburetor or the fuel injectors might need to be cleaned.

sounds like a fuel pump struggling to pass its contents. try running a treatment solution in your tank. if this fails to work, you will need a new fuel pump to correct this problem. sometimes, trash will build up in your tank and it will cause build up in the jets. you should check vacuum as well if needed.

Had a similar problem; started fine but lost power under acceleration and would stall. I changed the fuel sensor relay in the fuse box located on passenger side of interior fuse box. Ran fine after that.

Try changing out your distributer cap and rotor button. Let me know if that solves your problem.


Thx

The truck will run great as long as i am on the gas and going as soon as i slow down to come to a stop it will want to choke out it would seem like. it stalls out unless i put it in neutral, why?


had this exact thing occur in my car a couple of days ago. I lifted the bonnet and the air filter pipe was blown off from the filter box and a hole was in the box the air filter sits in. This was caused by a back fire problem my car has . I put the air filter pipe back on the box and have a piece of timber and gaffa tape covering the huge hole and my car runs ok until I can yet it serviced and fixed .

Engine 'chuggs' terribly on idle.


Could be a bad injector, miss fire. At this point it's best left to a repair shop.
