1984 Chevy K10 starts rough, idles, then turns off when the gas pedal is pressed.

I'm working on my son's Chevy K10 and this is the current problem I'm having. The truck starts rough, but it will turn on and idle. As soon as I press the gas, the truck turns off. Any idea what this could be? I've replaced the flywheel, spark plugs, distributor caps, and some wires.


I am sorry to hear about your problem my friend. Let me list down a couple of possible causes for this:

1. A faulty ignition - While it may seem strange, this is the most plausible cause of your problem. Does your car misfire? notice it and let me know.

2. A fault in the Fuel pump of the car - It is possible that the engine is not going enough fuel that keeps on stalling the car.

3. A leak in the Car vaccum

4. Faulty Electrical circuits - Maybe you can check the fuse box to find more about this issue. A faulty connection can cause very strange problems.

5. A faulty Control Valve can be behind this problem.

Did you try a scanner though?
