My 1982 el Camino has a check engine light when I idle for about 2-3 minutes and as soon as I give it gas it stumbles for a second then catches up and the check engine goes always till I idle again? My carburetor is a 2 bl rockChester. Just got rebuild was running lean and had no check engine light so I richen the mixture just a little and now I’m thinking it’s a rich indication code. I’m not fully sure because it’s hard to catch that code because the engine light goes away really fast. But I think it has to to with me richen it a bit because i didn’t have a check engine light before

did you check what code it is ? You can check the codes with the paper clip, sometimes the computer will hold the code & sometimes they don't
