Car Stalling Problems

Why would a Chevy 1 ton runs fine until it reaches a certain speed or you accelerate fast then it just shuts down but if you let off the accerator then it will pick up and go on?

have mechanic search for a GOVERNOR control switch. this device is an installed component that shuts down the engine at a specified cut-off limit, thus governing your speed check your catalytic converter. i had this problem and found out that every time i would step on it, a broken piece of it would blow up blocking the exhaust flow and when letting off the gas, would fall back down
