SOURCE: Chevy 1/2 ton 2wd 4.3 vortec rough idle tried everything I know

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.

SOURCE: 05 chevy silvarado duramax engine loses power.

i had a problem similar to this. what i did was i took it to the dealership where i bought it at and it was the EGR valuve that needed to be replaced. i ended up paying about $500 for the whole thing because i had it installed at the dealership. you can order the EGR valuve and install it on your own. it takes about ten minutes to install it.

SOURCE: surging power lose

a maf sensor will cause this also,you can go to any auto parts store and buy the maf sensor spray. follow directions on can. make sure air filter is clean also. my car did the same thing and after I cleaned the maf sensor it has been fine. 3.1 engine, to check sensor, just unplug it and try it on hills or highway. the car will not run very good and may stall out, but if the car does not surge, the maf is the problem.

Try blowing out your Airlines with a air compressor just disconnected the linesshit from the fuel pump and from the injection port and just blow it out start with low pressure and slowly work your way up. If that doesn't help you most likely have a leaky injector

85 nissan doesnt seem to b getting feul all the time


Check or replace the fuel pump control unit, common problem on the 720 models. It is in the right kick panel near the glove box. The part costs about $60 from Nissan.
There was also a recall on the ECM relay-causing surging, bucking, stalling, instruments go crazy. Relay is in the box at right rear of engine compartment.
Have you replaced the fuel filter and checked the air filter?

FUEL PUMP GETTING WEAK.CHECK FUEL PRESSURE.AFTER YOU DO AFTER YOU REPLACE FUEL FILTER AND AIR FILTER. THEN CLEAN FUEL INJECTORS BY POURING A CAN OF SEAFOAM TO 3/4 TO FULL TANK OF GAS.CHECK FUEL PRESSURE SHOULD BE 65 PSI. IF FUEL SYSTEM OKAY.YOU HAVE INTAKE LEAK CHECK ALL VACUUM HOSES AND PCV VALVE FOR VACUUM LEAKS,HAVE VECHICLE CODE SCAN VECHICLE LOOK FOR TRANSMISSION FAULT CODE.FAULTY TORQUE CONVERTER CAUSE ENGINE TO SURGE.LOOK FOR TPS FAULT CODE.AND IDLE AIR CONTROL FAULT.THEY BOTH CAN CAUSE SURGE PROBLEMS.

Continous surging and stalling


Per your description, I would suspect a fuel pump issue. When the fuel pump is running the pump impeller heats up. On an older pump the impeller can begin to seize up and momentarily stops and starts. Some times it just stops and has to cool down for a couple of minutes, then is ok for a while.
To test this theory, when the engine stalls and stops, your mechanic can use a rubber mallet and hit the bottom of the gas tank, this will free the pump impeller and the car will start again.
Or, have him install a fuel pressure gauge and go for a drive. If the pressure begins to fluctuate and drop, you know the pump is causing the issue.
Good luck, let me know.
Regards,
