I can't even get up enough powe to back outta the driveway. Help please where should I be looking for a problem. Last week I took it on a 600 mile trip and no problems. Also I changed the fuel filter, with no change in the vans running status.

Chevy 350 express van 2000 runs great idles rough


If it does not do it in park or neutral, it could be a number of things. One being a sticking Torque Converter Clutch solenoid (TCC). It could be that it needs a simple tune-up. How often does this problem happen?

1996 Chevy Express 1500 w/5.0 bogging only when warm.


The cylinder 7 misfire is likely a symptom of the problem, not the problem itself.

Typically, the catalytic converter has an oxygen sensor in front and behind it. When the vehicle is warm and running in closed loop mode, the upstream oxygen sensor waveform reading should fluctuate. The downstream 02 sensor reading should be fairly steady. Typically the P0420 code triggers the check engine light if the readings of the two sensors are similar. This is indicative of (among other things - such as faulty sensors in the "emissions loop") a converter that is not working as efficiently as it should be.

I do not believe that it is a problem with a valve/head gasket or cam.

Engine idles high when first started after tune up and takes long for kick down


Hi edsan 58,

Most gas injected engines run at a higher speed when started from cold....It's the cold start application working....As long as the idle speed returns to normal within a minute or two....longer when the weather is colder.....nothing to worry about
