See if you can help. If I let my jeep sit over night or half a day, it will start just fine but about five seconds later the engine dies. If I give it gas just as its about to die it will keep running but roughly. If I let it die I have to crank it for about a minute while pumping on the gas. Is this a carb problem or something else? What I don't understand is how easily it starts and it starts out running smooth. Sometimes too the thing will idle down and die when I stop, but sometimes it idles okay. Any help is appreciated. Also the 258 is stock.

I just put a new fuel filter on it, could it maybe be the pump going out?

Sometimes in 5th gear if I'm wanting to accelerate the thing idles real rough and when I ease off it smooths back out.

I thought about the timing too. I had it checked and the guy said it was okay.
