My truck idles up and down and wont stay running in gear


Asked by Oct 08, 2016 at 12:26 PM about the 1995 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Silverado Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My truck wont start unless i tap the gas. It runs for about
5 seconds then it stumbles and dies. After it warms up it
does not die in neutral or park. When i put it in drive the
motor stumbles and dies. I have to keep my foot on the
gas to make sure it doesnt die when i put it in gear. Even
in reverse. When i go down the road, it wont run over 2k
rpm unless you step on it. But when the truck is in neutral
or park, you can rev the motor and it runs good and goes
over 2k rpm. Ive replaced a thermostat next to the radiator
hose by the tbi, the truck runs way better but then a few
hours after installing it , it ran bad again. Ive also replaced
the tps, icv, distributor cap and rotor , plugs and plug
wires. My fuel pump is working because its making noise
when the key turns on. Ive heard my timing may be off.
But to me it sounds like its out of gas going down the
road. Im thinking a fuel problem. But it runs good in
neutral or park if i keep my foot on the gas. Please help
