stalling

F150 302 stalls whenever I start it. I use a stick to keep it idling.

It stalls when I go from park to reverse, or change any gear, or go
around a sharp corner.

Changed the plugs, the rotor and cap, and muffler.

What do I try next?

Maybe muffler was installed backwards and it's filling the engine with
exhaust.
Take muffler loose, carefully lower to ground, turn truck around and
reinstall muffler.

You should check the length of the stick. Different years used
different sticks.

How about reporting what codes have been set? Autozone will
scan it for you for free.

Re: stalling

Low oil pressure? I had this in my 86 Bronco 302. 1 foot on the brake, and 1
foot on the gas as the song goes. I have heard of several people that had
the same problem with their 302's. Thing died on me with low compression
finally. Keep heavy weight oil like 10w 40 in it.
