Check for vacuum leaks. Check fuel pump pressure.

I drained the gas tank & it had a lot of sludge in it. I dropped the tank & found the filter sock that should have been around the fuel pump in the bottom of the tank. I replaced the tank as it was pretty much deteriorated, the pump & sock & the in line filter &now it seems fine.
