When engine gets warmed up it bogs down when u try to accelerate
going down the road it runs fine, but when i stop at a stop sign, it will sometimes die on me unexpectedly.
When the engine gets warmed up and im drivin everytime from 1st to 5th gear it wants to bog when I accelerate ive changed the fuel filter spark plugs wires distributor cap and even put cleaner in my gas tank but it still continues to bog down
whenever I start the engine it runs good but after it warms up, every time I come to a stop sign or red lights it idles and sometimes kills the engine
Runs fine, then when warm it idles rough until it stalls intermittently.
Stalls on warm starts, especially at higher altitudes.

Will lift hood, let engine cool (10-30 minutes), and then engine starts fine.

Engine does not idle rough, or stall at stop lights/signs.
When the engine is cold it idles fine and runs fine,about after a minute it starts to have a surging idle. At about 2000 rpm the engine feels heavy but once its over 3000 ,it feels as if something was clogged
Stalls after warm up
when truck gets hot it idles rough and dies when i stop going along down the road runs fine?
