Why is my Chevy s10 spitting and sputtering and stalls

Asked by Anthony Sep 14, 2015 at 09:46 PM about the 1985 Chevrolet S-10

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Runs fine when cold but when the
motor is warm it bogs down when
pressing the gas pedal if you give it
full throttle it just stalls out I've tried
fuel pump and filter and also the
ignition coil I've also drilled holes in
the cat converter
