idels fine but when you give it gas it spits & sputters.
Low idling in park, almost diying, sluggish start and almost life my transmission is weak or going out, but still goes in all gears.
Not fixed yet.
Squealing sound coming from distributor. Shortly thereafter, the pickup stalled and I had to replace the distributor to correct the problem.
