I have a 1997 Chevrolet 1500 Silverado, Sometimes it runs great, then all of a sudden it try's to stall and don't want to take gas, anymore. Then the next time i drive it, it might run fine again. It does it all the time, Its very annoying. The truck has 140, 000 miles, Spark plugs, re-placed fuel filter, air filter good. The throttle body is smut-ed up pretty bad, when i look down into it. Any ideas would be appreciated. Can you please help me. Blush

Cammin; Agree with RT. Two important things to check: Fuel pressure (should be 60psi) and fuel filter. Do you have a check engine light illuminated when the engine is running?
