You sure you got the wires on right? I dought a vacume line would make it miss, unless you hear a( large )hissing noise, Look around the plentem and distributor cap and wear you ran the wires, IF your sure its a vacume leak.

Missing on number 3

Did you set the gap right on the spark plugs? Also double and triple check the wiring diagram for plug wires, because may have gotten one crossed. I would also check to see if having any vacuum leaks or broken vacuum lines since replacing wires, sometimes they become brittle and break.

2000 chevorlet silverado 2500 w 6.0 liter. Vehicle dies after start has rough idle and smells like fuel under heavy acceleration. Vehicle also bogs down when stopping heavier then usually. I have tested...

Sounds like a ruptured diaphram in the fuel pressure regulator. Fuel is being sucked into the motor through the vacuum line. remove vacuum line off regulator and see if there is fuel, or odor of fuel in the line , if so , the regulator is bad. Good Luck

2000 chevy silverado 5.3, skips a little between 50-55mph, plugs and wires were changed. scanner shows bad knock sensor #2. will changing this correct the problem?

it should but recheck ur wires and plugs first a bad plug or wire can cause a knock ping problem and set off sensor also check the knock sensor connections at rear of engine----- the knock sensors for the 8 cyl are located under the intake manifold so its labor intensive to replace the sensor

2000 dakota with 4cyl power miss at idle new plugs wires cap

Sounds like it might be choke? Maybe a vacuum line leaking around the throttle body? Or oxygen sensor? Or throttle position sensor? Or mapp sensor?

Not positive, but I would try those in that order. I hope this helps.

When 4hi or 4low is selected indicator blinks but system does not go into 4 wheel drive. When put in 4 wheel low rear locks engage.

Nine times out of ten its your push button switch module. fortunatly its not too expensive so if you are the 1 of the 10 that it dosent fix you wont have wasted alot of money. Had the exact same problem with my 2000 silverado also,,, fixed it with the new switch. Good luck!

Moisture in distributor in 2000 chevy silverado 1500. was told by repair shop ear missing on distributor causing cold misfire. quick fix to remove moisture myself until i can bring it in for repairs and...

In one word...WD-40. You don't even need to remove the cap. just spray the cap and plug wires to displace the moisture. It sounds odd, but I've tried it, and it works. I had a cracked cap that kept my wife's Honda Civic from starting when it was rainy, foggy, or even humid. Until I got around to putting a new cap on the car (I'm away from home for periods for work), she kept a can in the car.

1987 dodge ram has a miss

Hi there, Best thing to do is buy a Haynes or Clinton's repair shop manual for your particular vehicle. Then read up on it in the trouble shooting section or the step by step replacement section. You can purchase these at your local Auto Parts store or buy them on line at ebay burdfrenzy

My 2000 Chevy Silverado has trouble code P1133.

some cars do have recalls for bad codes being thrown check your dealership and if theres no problem they can block the code so your engine light will not come on for that code

If you have someone scan it with a scan tool that gives you data stream they can tell you exactly what cylinder is doing it. You might have a bad coil or wire.
