So I got a new carb on my 3.8 cold it will start, when it gets hot it will not fire by itself, but if I flip my choke closed it will fire right off and idol. Then when I put it in gear it will die unless I turn my idol up. The fuel in it is not the best but I think there my be an electrical issue? Any input would help

Possible big vacuum leak. You need to check the basics first. Like Timing, plug gaps, fuel pressure & volume, vacuum leaks, carb tuning, you will probably find the problem in one of these categories. If not the problem may be mechanical such as compression, jumped timing chain, cam lobes worn, distributor or cam gears worn, valve springs etc.
