Had her out for a drive today and started
up great. Idles just fine. Put her in drive

sylinoid? Carb? What's up?

Was this the first time in a long time? How old is the gasoline?

When was the last time you did a tuneup? Maybe the carburetor is due for a rebuild but try some fuel system cleaner first.

New gas just had her out last week. Try to drive her every couple of days. Just had the carb cleaned and adjusted. Drive it home from shop last Friday and it was perfect. Drive to work this morning just fine. This afternoon on the way home started acting up. Fuel pump? Filter?

Maybe the accelerator pump needs adjusting. Is the idle speed too low?

No. Idle speed seems to be fine.

Years ago my Sister had the exact same problem with her '76 Maverick. It was the carburetor. Sounds like it's time for some cleaner or a rebuild. Nice car BTW!! Brings back memories. Our next door neighbors had a blue one with a white vinyl top when I was a kid. HTH. -Jim

Thanks. Just had it cleaned but maybe it could use a rebuild. Will look into that also.
