Check vaccume lines, if that doesn't work check out the idle air control on the throttle body Do not Adjust! it will make your problem worse, did u pull a plug out and look at it? the shake could be a miss caused by a fouled plug and detonation also check vaccum lines to see if there is any build up inside the lines most people just look for holes on the out side, but sometimes those lines can get clogged pretty good. How many miles are on the truck, and what kind maintence schedule do have for your truck??? also check with chevrolet there was a recall on the colorado's i got one for mine it says that the seals in the heads sometimes go bad mine is an 06 i think it had some 05s in thw recall as well, also said it would cause the check engine light to come on, but wouldnt necessarily through a diagnostic code

    would also check the mass airflow sometimes it will get contaminents on it and make it read funny be gentle with it the middle piece in the middle is fragile, and while definatly not work if u bend it auto parts stores will carry a specific cleaner for it dont use carb cleaner on it

There are few possibilities that can cause engine misfire issues. It can be issue with spark plugs or faulty spark plugs. Also get the compression test done for cylinders. If any of cylinder shows low compression then required, then that particular cylinder will cause misfire.

Also get obd codes scanned, the error code will let you know which cylinder is misfiring or all cylinders are misfiring.

Car hesitates on highway than clears itself it almost like bad gas but has alot of work done





GM had a technical service bulletin 05-06-04-058 which had to do with a kind of chugging or loading uo under light acceleration. It would not set any codes in the computer. The most common finding was the throttle positing sensor being faulty and the tech will test it before replacing it.

There was a recall on these cars due to a problem where th engine would backfire and crack in the upper intake manifold. This was a fire hazard not to mention it could cause a driveability problem. It would create a vacuum leak which affects the MAP (MANIFOLD ABSOLUTE PRESSURE) sensor.
This relates to fuel mixture and would be noticeable at low speeds and idle.
Whether GM would still cover cracked manifolds after 15 years is debateable. The recall notice number is :97-C-02. This may get you started in the general direction.

1992 jeep cherokee sport 2 door 4.0 inline six. Jeep was running fine except when you went to start it it took two cranks sometimes three then would start. Went to start it the other day and it took alot...


Sounds more like a timing problem than an O2 Sensor. Distributor out of Sync would be my guess. It ran better at Higher idles because the timing belt/chain was tight from tension at low idle the timing was off which caused your problems. Now the belt is either broken or so loose the timing is out and the vehicle won't fire. If it has a Distributor cap remove it and watch the rotor. If it turns the belt is intact but Timing may still be off.

Low idle, stalls when put into gear, engine light on, code reader finds p0506 what is the most likely cause. the ICV recall was just done, this problem was happening before the recall work was done


When is the code detected? The idle speed is less than the target idle speed by 100 rpm or more.
Possible Causes - Dirty throttle body
- Electric throttle control actuator misadjusted or damaged
- Faulty Electric throttle control actuator
- Intake air leak
- Poor electrical connection to the Intake Air Control (IAC) valve
Possible Solution If there are no intake leaks, clean throttle body, adjust engine idle and erase engine code. If the code comes back you may have to replaced the Electric Throttle Control Actuator (Motor) to repair the problem.
