Answer sounds like a fuel leak more than likely the fuel pressure regulator or the fuel injectors. I had a similar problem with my 1991 Silverado with a 350 TBI . After buying a coolant temperature sensor "The one on the intake manifold which acts as a choke" , I had no further problems . May also be a map sensor . I had similar problem on a 1989 Chevrolet Blazer with a 305 TBI.,15900113//shopping/partTypeResultSet.htm
