Question about 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD
I have a 2001 chevy 2500 suburban with a 6.0L engine. I have a miss while idleing and when increaing speed and the check engine light is flashing. I changed the plugs and wire within the past 6 months so I checked that no wires were loose and used fuel injection cleaner but still have the miss. Took it to a local dealership and the mechanic said he was 99.9% sure I needed my intake gasket replaced. He said it was bad on the #5 plug. They want 550.00 -600.00 to replace the gasket. How difficult is it to replace the gasket myself and where can I find info on doing this?
You could have what is called a lean misfire which is caused by an intake manifold leak. Only you know if you are skilled enough to change the gasket yourself. Call the dealership and ask them what the book labor time is for the job, that time is for a skilled Tech. with all the proper tools. That will give you an indication of what you are up against.
