Have you checked your plug an wires? You said it will idle fine so. When u press the throttle does it die out or stall? The popping may be coming from the distributor or rotor button. Check all an let us know. We will trouble shoot your problem, the best of our ability to help fix your problem!


Another reason it could be doing this would be not enough fuel pressure. Suggest getting the fuel pressure checked, may have a bad fuel pump. Also look at the coil.
