Question about Chevrolet Silverado 1500

1 Answer

I have a 1996 Chevy truck 305. I have a misfire problem on #6. When I pulled the plug out it had some water in it, but only if it sits for along time. I have tried a new plug, a non-flower, any suggestion on it. Do I need to pull the intake? it runs so well accept when idle, it is sluggish then.

Have the intake gaskets been replaced yet? if not then it might be antifreeze coming from the intake throught the intake valve or worst case scenario it could be a head gasket leak,most likely it is the intake gasket,hope this helps

Could be 1 of 3 things sparkplug fouled,sparkplug wire or a faulty injector or injector wire connector has a poor connection.Also if this engine has 1 coil per cylinder then the coil for that cylinder could be faulty.

I keep getting a P0300 diagnostic code on my 1996 chevy corsica what could be the cause for this

its a random misfire if it had a number at end instead of 0 e.i. 1 that would indicate number 1 cylinder misfired/ but 300 with no other codes can be multi reasons check spark plugs and wires--coils--clogged injectors--fuel filter--fuel pump--bag gas(water) partial clog cat converter these are a few but best to start with plugs &wires

Misfiring /not firing on all cylinders

most common thing would be to check plugs and wires. may just need a tune up. look at wires and see if you see one rubbed thru
