Question about 1996 Chevrolet K1500
I have a 1996 silverado, 5.7L 4L60e. When I got this truck I looked at the distributer and though it was one of the new ones without a roter.(doppy me) I finnaly replaced the cap and roter and then started feeling a jerkieness when going down the highway at nutral throttle. I have to let off the gas till I slow down then accelerate slowly as far as I dare above the speed limit then slow down again. That keeps it from jerking. While all this was starting, my tranny was going out. I replaced it with a used one hoping the jerks were trans. related. There still there, and I don't have converter lockup untill the hole mess warms up. then about 8 to 10 miles down the road, lockup stops working. I still get the jerks in O/D. This may be two problems, but I would really appreciate any help anyone has. Thanks,
If you engine isn't running right the trans won't act right. You need to check all of you spark plugs, they need to be gapped @ .060, you could also check them to make sure that they are not cracked. They are easy to crack during instulation. You can put also put electrical contact grease inside the plug boots. This will aid wire & plug connection. The fuel pressure should be 60-65 psi (non running with no leak down, you may need to cycle the key on & off 2 or 3 times to acheve peek psi) The common problem with these is that the injector line busts inside the intake.
