what is the rest of your question?

Ooooooohhhhh, I’m sorry but my question was complete I don’t know what happen. Anyhow my rest of question is as below: When I am naughty and push acceleration pedal fully, my car run very well but when the gear want to shift from one to two suddenly the engine going to die then I have to release acceleration pedal to half and gearbox smoothly shift to two. When I drive in city normally I don’t have any problem my problem is when I push acceleration pedal fully. In addition I feel when my engine and gearbox reach to working temperature I face this problem. I don’t use my car too much maybe I drive it 50 km per month. I didn’t have this problem 6 months ago

Perhaps a gummed up fuel system. Take the car out for a 200km drive and run a tank of gas and Techron through it. It may need a tuneup as well.

i cleaned my fuel tank last year and changed all fuel pipes between tank and carburetor. In addition i overhauled the carburetor last year. i renewed my distributor and spark plugs as well. But i agree with you that there is some problem with my fuel system. i want to inspect my carburetor fuel filter and then clean my spark plug and i let you know about the result for further advise
