87 Dodge van. 318 engine. 145K miles. Four barrel carb.
Slows, and only goes about 20 MPH. With gentle throttle. Flooring it
causes it to die completely.
After doing this for awhile, slows and dies. Restarts after a couple
minutes, restarts easier with a squirt of ether. Then drives for
another hundred feet or so.
Problem is intermittent. Two weeks ago, had the problem. So I added
drygas, and filled the tank. It was fine for about two weeks.
Did it again yesterday, had to call a tow truck to get me home.
Today I checked the fuel delivery, put a paper napkin over the high
side line coming off the fuel pump. Run the startter, and the paper
napkin soaked right through with gasoline. Changed the fuel filter,
it's starting to rain. It's good and wet out there.
I've heard an assortment of theories. But there are some really good
Mopar experts on this group. What comes to mind, in terms of problems
