Intermittent miss


is this a 4.3 engine, if so A common complaint with the Chevy 4.3 engine is that it doesn't idle well, it's loud and makes awkward noises. Examples of this are staling, lurching and poor acceleration. being you checked the plugs and wires. Look for corrosion, breaks, exposed wires and loose connections.Lack of oil will cause a knocking sound in the engine, stalling, poor acceleration and eventually engine break down. check all vacuum lines closely. good-day!

Engine missing is a vast subject and calls for number of things to examine. What are the problem symptoms? Is it concerned with one or more of the following?
- Rough idle, stalls or misses.
- Engine hesitates/ poor acceleration.
- Engine diesels (runs after ignition switch is turned off).
- Muffler explosion (after fire) on deceleration only.
- Engine backfires.
- Engine rattles at idle speed only.
- Engine rattles at all speeds.
Please mention if there is some other symptom.
Thanks.

When accelerator is pressed down the engine stuters until use ease off the pedel. can only use 1/4 to 1/2 throttle.


The most common problem for this is the fuel filter or dirty spark plugs. If it is the plugs you would have a slight miss when idleing or be able to smell gas fumes from exhaust. Also your gas mileage would go down. The fuel filter will cause the vehicle to feel like it will stall and die when you try to accelerate or raise the rpm's in idle. I hope this helps. If you try both and it does not help try pulling the trouble codes and having them checked.

3.4L engine stall at stops


do u have a check engine light coming on? if not the plugs are not the problem a miss will trigger a check engine/service engine soon light, most likely you have a dirty automatic idle speed control motor.

Hesitation , skipping,engine cuts out when accelerating


Im having the same issue I believe. I have a 94\' Chevy 1500 and when i accelerate it will jerk like the gas has cut out but it wont stall. It just jerks and slows me down. It only seems to do it when going up a hill. I feel like it could be the fuel pump or possibly some intake gaskets?

Stalling out


One indication of the Coil failing,,is the car will idle nicely,,but will **** out when under hard acceleration.
This can also be caused by non functionaing alternator,,and dead battery.
