SOURCE: 2007 gmc sierra 2500 IAT sensor

Well, the IAT (Intake Air Temperature) sensor is located on the air intake duct between the filter and the throttle body (Assuming you have the 6L motor). The wires are easily visible at the plug that connects the sensor to the wiring harness. That's the easiest place to access them.

I wouldn't think it to be a fuel delivery problem anymore.If you could get someone to scan it while the problem occurs maybe you could see if your TPS is dropping out due to a faulty sensor or connector,also you could check for a blocked cat convertor by hooking up a vacuum gauge to the engine or a pressure gauge to the exhaust at 1500rpms should be no more than 1 to 1 1/2 pounds back pressure. Also you could check your magnetic pole piece that is under the rotor in your distributor they are known for the magnet cracking at the rivets.

SOURCE: where do i find a knock sensor a 1993 gmc sierra

Should be on the right side of the engine by the starter.Has a 1 wire connector.It does not go into the cooling system so you can just take it out without draining the coolant.Hope this helps.Good luck.

What causes a 89 4x4 gmc Sierra to t bog down when your cranking it up and driving at low speeds

Maybe to much fuel. Does your coolant gauge work or register? Could be the ECT sensor. Could be fouled plugs also. Do you have smoke coming out the back? is it black smoke?

2008 sierra that does alot of bucking when doing between 65-75mph. Was suggested that I clean the throttle body and fuel injection system and did but did not fix the problem. If idoling it runs great.

I have had similar problems and the solution was to change the spark plug wires. If you have over 75,000 miles on your Sierra, it's time. Other than that, you would need an onboard diagnostic.
Good Luck.

Just a thought, have you checked yout TPS(throttle position sensor)? I had similar problems with my 89 GMC Jimmy 4.3l, however a code 44 is strange. Also check to see if your problems go away if you advance the timing a few degree's.

Hope this helps
