    I have a 84 blazer with a 305 bored out in it, with a four barrel carb. It starts right up and will run fine for a few miles, then coming to a stop or when i'm just coasting it dies. As long as i realize it and don't keep giving it gas, it usually starts back up. Any suggestions on what this could be would help a lot. Thanks /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Have you spent any time under the hood and determined if it's an electrical or a gas issue? It kinda sounds to me like your truck is getting too much gas, especially if feathering the pedal keeps the motor from stalling out. Your problem could be a sticky choke or a sticky needle/seat. Does it matter if the air temperature is hot or cold?
