Engine Dies At Low Idle.

Posted in Perfomance Parts | Asked on Jun 27, 2010

Bought a 72′ GMC PU crate 350 dominator manifold w/holley 650 carb. Engine does not have correct distributor. It has dist w/coil on top instead of coil mounted off to side. Engine dies when I brake hard or at low idle when turning or stopped at light.

    Sounds like your not getting enough fuel. (This makes sense as your car is still able to run at a higher rpm when it demands more fuel) This could be your carb, a bad fuel filter, or maybe (slim chance) the fuel pump.
