1993 gmc sierra 4wd 5.7L running rough mostly during low rpm, hesitates, then smooths out. Problem is becomming more prevalent, wider rmp range. New plugs, wires, cap, rotor, fuel filter. Still happening.


timing might be off a little...or your low idle control might not be functioning. try unhooking your idle control module on throttle body, if it doesnt change idle when you disconnect it, its faulty.
