258 Engine is stalling

Hi all, truck starts up first pop no worries and runs great but... if I put my foot down to the floor quickly it stalls...unless I take my foot off. Any ideas please.

Sounds to me like either a fuel or vacuum issue. If it runs without touching the pedal, I'd say fuel is getting to the engine. Check your vacuum lines and make sure they're all tight. I know that's what happened on my 360 and I had the same problem you're having.

Insure the accelerator pump is working.
