    Also, the silverado isn't listed on my online resource. Is this a pickup or a suburban that has silverado on the side? If so, what submodel and engine size?

Wow, a reply about an Australian based engine. I'm thinking since there is no reply that he just may have a US based engine just posted the wrong size. in which case this might help.

I couldn't find a photo but here is the firing order for the holden 308 by general motors : 1-2-7-8-4-5-6-3

you cylinders should be like this :

radiator
1 2
3 4
5 6
7 8

I believe this is correct.

I need help with my 1999 chevy silverado 1500 5.3 4x4 I have a rough idle like its only running on 7 cylinders here are some of the things I've done to try and resolve this issue, changed fuel filter


you need to isolate which cylinder it is first may help.
while running use insulated pliers to pull each plug wire off plug or cap separately, you will hear idle change/drop when a good cylinder is pulled. it will not change when not firing cylinder is pulled. now u got the cylinder and can double check plug, wire connections there. see if that wire sparks on a ground or plug to check spark and eliminate that issue. if you get a zap you need a better insulated pliers, but you know that wire is good. Remember the 3 things needed on all engines- Spark, Fuel, Air. oh yes and Compression. if you have spark, then have cylinder compression tested 120-150psi is still good. 80psi sucks and you have bad rings or valves., fuel cleaner may help in that situation, rare fix, but cheaper than a new engine.

Truck misses after it is warmed up.


Start with a tune up, spark plugs, spark plug wires, fuel filter, air filter and that might cure the PO300B code, hope this helps, Gary
