Question about 1997 Chevrolet Tahoe
I had my intake manifold gasket go at 130k miles and had a friends cousin replace gasket, after this repair my #2 cylinder is misfiring. Prior to this my truck ran great. Could this be something he inadvertently did on the repair? And what is the proper way to troubleshoot the problem and possible problems that could be causing this misfire?
It's possible he has two plug wires crossed, or pulled a spak plug wire apart replace #2 spark plug wire First. To test check the firing order and make sure all the wires on the right plugs and the correct place on the distributor, if it is right, then buy a can of carburator cleaner and spray around the intake gasket if the engine revs up when you spray the carb cleaner around the intake manifold with (engine running) if the engine rpm revs up you have an intake leak.
