Question about 1998 Chevrolet Tahoe
1998 5.7 vortec in my 4x4 sounds like i have vac/air leaking on driver side of motor and runs like it is out of time . ijust replaced spark plugs ,timing chain cover and took off injecter manifold to check for cracks .found some loose inj,manifold bolts but that was it put back together an runs better but not fixed pls help.
The 5.0l and 5.7l all have this problem at some time.The lower intake gaskets are bad.and are sucking air which will cause the eng. to idle high and sound like like there is a cylinder or two that are not firing and you also may loose antifreeze.The upper intake is black/plastic and the lower is aluminum.Tightening the lower intake bolts may seem to help but once the gaskets are blown,they need to be replaced.If its sucking more air through the bad gasket than the TBI it will not get the right air to gas mixture.Check that all vacuum hoses are in good shape and the vacuum line that runs from the top of the upper intake to the brake booster is sealed good in the intake.Hope this gives you a better idea.
