carb question?? please help!!

OK guys I have a carb problem I believe, I just put the motor back in my car from doing a oil pan gasket. anyways friday night me and the wife go fill it up with gas and drive it around just for fun, it drives fine. park it leave it overnight. go to drive it on sat to a buddys house, starts fine warm it up and leave first light i get to and I can tell it wants to die, I figured it just wasnt warmed up enough yet keep driving and notice it surges while cruisin. stop at the next light and it is trying to die, and I have to give it gas while idling to keep it alive. SO anyways get it back home, and it just wont stay running, check for vacuum leaks none, fuel presure is there, im looking in the primaries and it goes from steady stream of fuel to barely anything coming out then steady stream of fuel to nothing, it goes back and forth like this but sometimes when I rev it up and shut the choke on it real quick to where it almost dies, then rev it up again it runs smooth for about a minute then it starts slowly wanting to die again before it shuts off, I have had the carb for about 5 years so am wondering if it is at its last rope or what I am really confused it is a edelbrock performer 600 cfm manual choke carb, sorry if this is confusing but any help would be greatly appreciated you guys have always helped me out in the past and are awesome.thanks alot

Re: carb question?? please help!!

Start simple. Try replacing the fuel filter first. Then maybe rebuild the carb.
