    After my truck gets warm, I begin to smell gas while driving down the road and whenever I put the truck in a torque intensive position it chokes out. Do I just need to adjust the carb, could I have water in my distributor cap, etc.......?????

    Check the rubber fuel hose from the metal line at frame to the fuel pump.Time and vibration causes them to crack, leak, and suck air. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif
