    Exclamation engine dying

    I've got an Lt1 and when i accelerate from a stop or at least a very low idle (slow traffic) the car will choke and sputter when i go to accelerate then it will catch and take off rather jerky. it does it probably 75% of the time and it will do it when the engine is cold and when it is warm, and it will sometimes die... anyone with any suggestions, i have changed spark plugs, ran professional injector cleaner through the fuel rail. ideas or suggestions more than welcome.

    Check your fuel pressure.

    could be as simple as a fuel filter ot a pcv. Also check the hose going to the pcv, it's good at getting melted on LT1 s and it'll run like that
