Add an inline fuel filter if you don't have one. Check the idle speed and adjust it if it is low. Do a tuneup if the engine needs it.

I adjusted the floats today cause there was too much gas in them. I can put the truck in Drive and it won't stall. The problem now is the idle when in drive.... IT jumps up and down on rpm, then it will stabilize for a moment then rough idle again. The lights will also go dim during this repeated cycle.
