Sounds to me like your automatic choke is disrupting the mas sensor sending wrong signals to the computer, take of the mas air flow and clean it, wouldnt hurt to do the map sensor as well. clean out the choke body and see if that helps, good luck. I prefer NGK plugs for high and hard revs.

This is just a stab in the dark, have you checked the hydraulic lifters? I had a similar symptom on a 4 cylinder engine and it turn out to be a stuck valve lifter.

See if there is a code in the computer and work from there. Find someone with an OBD2 code reader. If I'm not mistaken an OBD2 code reader works on 1996 and newer models. Could be a bad coil and you don't notice it when you first start it until it idles down, to check for that, while the engine is running, pull each wire off the spark plug, Each time you do that you should hear the engine struggle. Then pick back up once you plug it back to the spark plug. If you pull one and nothing happens to the engine, that could be all or part of the problem. Hope this helps.

no codes ? it happens, guess we'll go the old fashion way then. you are going to have to test every sensor like throttle position, idle mixture, mass air flow etc. and replace the ones that are defective. does it smell like gas coming from the exhaust ? this could be the choke being stuck, also controlled by computer that controls everything from the info it gets from the sensors.

Sounds like a ruptured diaphram in the fuel pressure regulator. Fuel is being sucked into the motor through the vacuum line. remove vacuum line off regulator and see if there is fuel, or odor of fuel in the line , if so , the regulator is bad. Good Luck

Where is the oil filter located on 1999 Chevrolet 1500

Directly under the engine between the front wheels. Crawl under neath (safely) you can't miss it. Chevrolet recommends AC Delco as a replacement. Fram is a good choice too - PH3675.

I have a 1999 Chevrolet Z24 Cavalier, It has 241,000 miles on it. It runs great and I haven't had to fix much on it. Just lately it started missing when you accelerate to speed up fast or go up a hill in...

Normally the first thing that would cause a miss like that (under load in a tall gear) is a secondary ignition miss, usually caused by a plug wire, or possibly a distributor cap or rotor-have these been replaced in the last 30,000 miles? If not, I would do them first. If it still happens, you might then change the fuel filter, clean the throttle body and Mass Air Flow sensor, and replace the air filter-that's a complete tuneup, it should last you another 50,000 plus miles as long as you change the oil religiously and don't overheat it.
