Question about Chevrolet Cars & Trucks
I suspect a defective alternator...If you have a voltmeter, set it to read 12 volts...Read across battery terminals with engine off...Jump start vehicle and read across terminals again...Must read at least 2,8 volts higher..If not alternator is defective...If good there is a current drain on the battery when engine is off...Check for any lights remaining on...If you have a under-hood-light this is probably the fault...Remove bulb

If your is exhibiting the same signs as a dead battery it really sounds like your alternator is bad. If you are handy, you can remove the alternator and take it to an autoparts store like autozone and they will test it for you. This is not a hard job to do, usually 2 electrical connections, 3-5 mounting bolts and you have to pop the belt off. Just reverse it to install a new one. Good luck! - Nick

How many miles on the plugs and wires? Misfire can be caused by either plugs or wires, after that check the injector for that cylinder. Let me know what u find. Curt
