when ever the car is not hot it runs fine but as soon as you get on the throttle it will shut off with a full tank of gas. But it starts right back up. We cleaned out the carbeurater but that didnt do anything

Can you determine if it is losing fuel pressure? Since you specify a full tank, does it not happen as the level gets lower? If you can determine that it is losing fuel pressure when it stalls out, I would suspect an anti-slosh baffle in the fuel tank that is moving and cutting off supply. Does this also occur when making turns at like residential speeds, rounding a corner?
