All gaskets was replaced before I put motor in truck the motor was built n ran in other truck I took it out of. My old motor did the same problem Even when I put the new motor in truck I had all new spark components replaced new sensors all around on motor n replace fuelpump twice n still my motor dies when I give it gas I'm stump on this
