Sounds like a carburetor problem. My Sister's '76 Ford Maverick did the exact same thing once. A word of caution here. Have the original carburetor rebuilt by a reputable shop. Do NOT buy a remanufactured unit from the local auto parts store!! Each carburetor has a specific model number that is vehicle and model year specific. You've got a better chance at hitting the lottery than getting the correct carburetor for your truck!! HTH -Jim

Well Thats What im Thinking,The Carburetor is like 1Month Old.Brought It Frm Autozone,It Was Working Fine,So It Might Needs To Be Adjusted Just A Little
