    If I'm driving and I stomp on the gas it will kinda die for a second then really pick up. I was curious what I could adjust to fix it. It is a Goodwrench 350, and a Quadrajet carb. Thanks

    First, check the basics.

    Fuel filter
    bad gas
    kinked fuel line
    etc..


    rule out fuel supply probs by ensuring that you have enough volume of fuel being delivered first. You have a 50% chance of finding the prob there.

    Then look for "fire" probs

    plugs
    wires
    spark

    do wuick check of coil rest of ignition system.

    If you don't rule out the basics, you will make adjustments to the carb w/out fixing the prob and perhaps making things worse.

    Start w/the basics. 90% of the time....that's the prob.
