Question about Chevrolet 1500
When moisture or rains alot ,engine doesn't want to idle right .up and down idling and back firing

You may need to replace the cap, rotor and wires to fix the problem.

ford has a technical service bullitin out on this vehicle for the intake gaskets leaking causing a vacum leak that set codes 171 174. the solution is to have the intake manifold gaskets replaced . call your local ford dealer and see what thay can tell you about this bullitin.

Very common problem is about a dime size hole wearing in the rubber elbow on the PCV valve located on the driver side rear of the intake manifold.
