Sounds like its missing on 1 or more cylinders. A check of the plugs and wires is in order, Could be a fouled plug or a loose/bad sparkplug wire. Best of luck.

IAC Idle Air Control may not be idling it up, may have clogged passageway or bad circuit to it. Also possible the compressor or clutch is binding or trying to lock up.

When idleing once in a while it starts running rough and shaking truck, 1998 k1500 350. no engine light. when i gige it gas it smooths right out. engine seems like its a little louder than normal.


Here is the common cause of surges, cold stalls, stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours.

To correct this problem Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (it is made by CRC) from the local auto parts store, NEVER USE CARB CLEANING SPRAY, IT DESTROYS THE ANTI-STICK TEFLON COATING, spray it into the air intake through the throttle body of the engine until you have used about half the can, you will need to hold the idle up while you do this, it will try to stall, after this shut the engine down and disconnect the Negative (-) battery cable for 5 minutes. The intake is now clean, if you continue to have the idle speed control problems you may need to seek the help of a professional.

My car is hesitating when I accelerate when I first start it after sitting idle. I have been told it is the 1,2 shift cylanoid. What is this, how much to repair, how serious, I have taken it in to the...


What is hesitating - the engine or the transmission?

When starting the car and putting it in gear, if the transmission shifts immediately into first gear and then shifts smoothly from first to second gear, I doubt its a transmission problem. However, if that isn't the case, you will probably need a new or rebuilt transmission ($1500+).

Engine hesitation can be due to a lot of things related to the fuel system that won't necessarily show up on a code reader - for example, dirty throttle body, fouled IAC (idle air control) motor, fouled EGR valve, etc.

Car hesitates/stalls when engine is warm and car starts to move.


Sounds like a bad motor mount, pop the hood and see if the motor shakes or moves rapidly when u put it in gear holding down the brake.

Hesitation / missing / car shakes


Hello;
The problem is most likely break down of the spark plug wires. The demands on the spark during acceleration and load destroy the wires as they age. I would start there. Hope this helps.
Thanks;
