Default Need help!

I just bought a 98 Chevy Blazer with a 4.3. The guy glued the coil back on after stripping the bolts and broke it off. The truck starts up perfect but as soon as I start giving it gas it spits and sputters. Need this issue fixed soon... Thanks

I would replace the said "broken coil", check the fuel pressure, if the pressure is good I'd check the cap and rotor (replace if needed). If that doesn't solve it I would check plugs and wires. If you still have this problem there is probably a more serious electrical issue, or bad sensor somewhere.

So the lower intake is good, replaced the plenum gasket and I-rings, had a major vacuum leak, and is still doing it... Going to try and find a texting valve and check the fuel pressure on it
