Customer Question

1999 dt530 rebuild motor cranked and idled good. Ran good on test drive. A couple of days later took it down the road and it ran weak. When I came to a stop it died. It started back up ran strong then I let off the gas and it started to die so I mash the
gas and it seemed like it was starving for fuel in a few seconds it cleared up after staying in the gas. When it does clear up it may run strong or weak.
