82 Chevy k10 motor or transmission

Asked by Feb 20, 2016 at 10:34 AM about the 1982 Chevrolet C/K 10 Scottsdale LB 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 82 Chevy k10 with 350 and 350 turbo 4
speed auto. It will cruze down the road fine but
when you stomp down on it it hesitates real bad.
But it only does it in gear runs fine reving it up. The
transmission fluid is a little black but doesn't smell
burnt. Has 600 edelbrock changed step up  springs
in carb. What should I look for?

Check for vacuum leaks. Also is it electric or manual fuel pump?

It does fine sitting in the driveway holding it open doesn't miss a lick. Just when it is under load


Also check plugs, plug wires, dist cap and rotor. These can also cause stalling under a load.
