Please be fast about checking your fuel pump. It is not giving enough fuel pressure.

I had a 96 GMC 1500 with a 5.7 ltr. It would idle rough, especially on start up. After replacing everything under the sun, it turned out the ECM (computer) was shot. I found a used one and plugged it in and it ran fine. I think I paid 50 bucks or so for it. If you know someone with a truck like yours, plug theirs in and see if it fixes it.

Does it have the 2.3l Quad 4 engine? If so replace the plastic piece that the coils go into, they go bad and leak spark to the cam towers and then you get a nice one or multiple cylinder misfire.

My recomendations would be to check your plugs and wires for damage.Check the fuel pressure to the fuel rails for proper pressure.This should be done by your local shop.If the pressure is low it could possibly a fuel pressure regulator,clogged filter,fuel pump going bad or bad injectors.Also inspect your ignition timing and components in the ignition system for proper operation.All of these things are tied into the computer to assure proper operation.Allways start with the plugs and wires if they have alot of miles on them and then the fuel delivery system.I hope some of this info will help you narrow down your search for this problem.
