It's been a while since I've done a vortec engine. So if I am correct. Your injection system is under the intake plenum. It's called a spider system. It has the injectors at the top with small tubes going to the nozzles that sit inside the ports. The small tubes get hard and brittle, thy break. This would cause the fuel to be in the oil and since it's not getting to the cylinder, it would misfire. When more than on breaks, the worse it gets. Remove the fuel lines, remove the plug for the injectors and remove the intake upper plenum. Look at it. If all the hoses are in tact, replace the fuel pressure regulator on the side of the injector housing.

Check, or let a tech check the gaskets. Don't drive the car till it is solved, just to avoid more damage.

It starts barely rough idle touch the gas and it dies/


When was the last time you had a tune-up? That also includes a new fuel filter. If the fuel filter gets clogged it could cause this problem. Get new plugs, oil and oil filter. If this doesn't improve things you might have a problem with your fuel pump. Also make sure you are getting quality gas.

Want idle


Hi, I'm sorry you had a bad experience on fixya. You do not have to pay for an answer, but the experts are not employees. We are just volunteers that enjoy helping others. There are not enough of us to answer every question, so we do the best we can.
Your problem does not sound like a fuel pump problem, though it could be part of the problem. Low fuel pressure can also be caused by a failed fuel pressure regulator. Also, failure to idle could be caused by a failed idle air control valve or a clogged idle air passage. I'm willing to help you troubleshoot this problem if you can perform some testing.
