Three things you should check using a good code checker which can read sensor outputs - the throttle position sensor (TPS), the mass air flow sensor (MAF) and the EGR valve. While you are at it, replace the PCV valve.

It may just be a dirty MAF sensor, you may want to spray carb cleaner into the intake to clean out. Check also the idle air control valve. IT may also just be dirty. Check for loose vacuum hose. If you can, have a scanner connected to the diagnostic port to see if there are errors. Some shops would let you borrow their scanners.

1996 chevy k1500 misses at idle and backfires while driving when you let off of gas. Changed plugs, wires, cap, rotor button.

Try cleaning your MAF sensor, and check your IAT (intake air temperature). A dirty MAF sensor can cause your engine to run lean and a faulty IAT can throw off your ECM's program causing a conflict to your timing and fuel injection pulse.

Thank you for using Fixya and good luck.
