83 corona stalling at idle problem Help!
First time posting, not sure if you guys can help but I am out of options!
I own a 1983 Toyota Corona CS with the Starfire 1X engine. Ever since I bought it I've had problems with what I am assuming is the carburettor. It fires up fine and idles fine (when it's cold) and even drives fine but as soon as its warmed up and I come up to an intersection or stop sign the rpm drops and will run very rough until it stalls once I've come to a stop. It was sitting for about 1.5-2 years and not started so I have cleared the fuel lines, replaced the fuel filter and checked the spark plugs. It does seem to backfire a lot once you let off the accelerator as well. I am assuming it's something to do with the carburettor but I am not sure it could be something else entirely. Any insight would be much appreciated! Thankyou!
I will attach a photo of the car for reference.
