1988 350 motor shuts off going down the road

Asked by May 03, 2017 at 06:47 PM about the 1988 Chevrolet C/K 2500 Cheyenne Standard Cab LB 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Driving down the road truck acts like it doesnt get gas and
shuts off. Sometimes it will putter first then shut off other
times it wont.  When it putters you can easily press the
gas and it'll go away but if you press it to hard its worse

Probably a fuel pressure issue, or a vacuum leak. Fuel pressure should be 9 to 13 lbs. and I have seen the TBI base gaskets go, so check the base gasket also.
