1994 GMC 5.7 L Hesitation Problems

My truck is having some hesitation problems coming off of idle. It is also spitting and sputtering just as I let off the throttle as well. I have put new plugs, cap, rotor, and have ran a can of sea foam in the gas tank. It does not seem to have a noticible vaccuum leak. My gas milage has gone down around 11-13 MPG in the last year.

    Thank You, My problem was the EGR valve! I had first assumed that I had a vaccuum leak, but could not visually see anything wrong. I pulled the old EGR valve off and it was just plugged with carbon buildup. The old valve opened, but with alot of force. The truck is running great now!

The problem is most likely the EGR Valve. to test this disconnect the vacuum line to the EGR Valve and block it with a screw or golf tee, if the hesitation goes away replace the EGR Valve.

Try cleaning the Mass airflow sensor and replacing the air filter. You can buy the spray MAF sensor cleaner from any auto parts store for about $6.00, ask the parts guy how to use it.

Cold start injector could be bad, or you could have a small vacuum leak, like a cracked hose. A vacuum leak is most noticeable at idle, when engine cold.

When I start the car, it will sputter. It runs OK and that sputter stops when the speed gets up to 35-40 but when you stop, it is there again. Going up a hill, there was no hesitation. This is a 1994...


check sparkplug wires, may be time for a tune-up. also those engines have injector problems, the problem is they need cleaning, with a motor vac machine, may have to go to a garge,good luck, start there.

HONDA ACCORD 94 PUSH ON THE GAS AND IT DOSNT WANT TO GO


make sure your fuel does NOT have any ethanol in it. these engines don't like corn fuel. i had a similar hesitation problem. it was from using gas w/ 10% ethanol. i switched to 100% gas, no more hesitation.
