SBC, quadrajet, electric pulse type pump mounted in engine bay. 1) Got stuck in stop and go traffic(mostly stop) for about 40 mins. Idled fine the whole time. Didn't overheat although towards the end it got up to about 225-230ish. 2) AS SOON AS traffic broke and we were able to get moving AND AS SOON AS I GOT ON THE GAS it stalled out. Was able to coast and put it in neutral and restart with no problems, but as soon as i put it in gear and tried to give it gas----stalled again. This went on for about 4-5 times ----(i don't remember exactly as it was very hectic cos the bridge didn't have any shoulders and my main concern was all the pissed off folks that were going to be staring and possibly cussing at me if i were to break down----traffic was already backed up at least one mile due to the toll and it was very hot yesterday....) After the 5th or so restart it cleared up and stayed running. By this time we were able to move at about 23mph, then gradually 40 and on to normal highway speeds no problem. Engine temp also dropped to about 195-200ish. a) So i think each time i restarted it i did also press down on the pedal (this might indicate flooding?) About 2 miles later, stopped to get gas. Afterwards, started up no problems and the car otherwise performed great the rest of the day. What might cause stalling when accelerating after a very long idle?
