Question about 1996 Chevrolet K1500
Checked all sensors and changed out fuel pump (wouldn't start otherwise). Engine surges but drives ok @ driving speeds (except tranny won't shift into 3rd gear). The only thing I haven't tried is draining out the old gas - it smells terrible and refilling.
I had the same problem with my 96 Chevy 4.3. It idled rough enough to shake the truck at a stop. It revved up fine but sputtered on take off. My truck did not want to stay in overdrive because of the low rev. I changed cap, rotor, plugs, wires and this did nothing. Finally I took the intake off and found corrosion on the side intake gaskets near the rear of the engine causing a vacuum leak.
