Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

1999 silverado 1500 4.3 vortec skips and misses

This usually happens after the truck has warmed up. the fuel filter, plug wires, ignition coil, and one O2 sensor have been recently replaced. dumped sea foam gas treatment into a full tank of gas so it isn't moisture. i know i have a bad fuel level sensor but it has been bad for 18 months so i don't think it's related.

    Same problem. I replaced the distributor cap, rotor and fuel filter. Any other thoughts? Now it won't even start. When I turn the ignition on, I can hear the the fuel pump in the tank. Tank is half full.
    Mine is an '04 Silverado 4.3

Start the truck, open the hood, find your ignition coil. There is a two or three wire connector that clips into the coil. Wiggle or lift up on the wires. If your engine shuts down, there's your problem. Replace the connector.

No, not related. If it has a distributor, look inside the cap and check the rotor.

Not much else it could be you have renewed just about everything. How about the coil sets? How healthy do the sparks look? try swapping some the faulty cylinder coils around with those that are good and noting the shift in misfires. The coils get hot and suffer over time. I think if you examine the sparks from each plug in turn you will see big differences from good to poor. For safety disconnect the fuel pump relay when checking the spark we don't want any fires.
