check your vacuum if you have already had the carb tuned... also your idle may need to be re adjusted

THATS REALLY LOW MILES, WAS VEHICLE STORED FOR A LONG PERIOD? SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE AN OBSTRUCTION BETWEEN CARB AND FUEL TANK.IF IT WAS JUST PARKED AND NOT STORED RIGHT I SAY FUEL FILTER. OR WATER IN GAS,TRY A CAN OF DRY GAS ,THAT'S LEAST EXPENCIVE WAY.
