my 86 chevy sprint wont idle now, I was driving it and it started loosing power and died wouldent start took to shop and they cleaned the filter and put an electric fuel pump on it to replace the old electric fuel pump (mechanical pump cam lobe woren out)
when they were done it ran for about 150 miles and died again and again it will not idle, I seem to have good gas flow to the mecanical pump, about 8 months ago I purchased and installed a remanufactured carb and the egr valve was completly pluged I replaced the hoses and cleaned out the intake port and egr valve and replaced the hoses

now I'm not sure what to do to try to fix it and could use some guidence

Post some pictures of what you've got under the hood, please.

Once you get the cars dialed-in (compression, leaks, bearings, alignment, brakes) swap in new rubber and glass, you've got something which should last for years!

before this thread gets further in detail, move it to the proper section or it will be hard to find with the search button.

86 goes in the 85 thru 88 section. :-P
