Rough idling sluggish acceleration
These 4.3L W motors are common for fuel leaking inside the plenum causing them to run rough and smell like raw fuel. The fuel pressure regulator leaks internally, also the injector spider leaks and the two fuel lines feeding the fuel to the spider. You have to remove the plenum and look for the clean spot. Where the fuel leaks it cleans the oil off. Before you try this check your EGR valve. The EGR valves on these get stuck open with carbon and cause a rough idle. Remove it and look for the plunger it is a small round piece that you can push in and out, make sure it closes fully. You can also clean it with carb clean and they make a replacement gasket with a screen in it to keep chunks out of it. Start with the EGR because it is easier. The parts for under the plenum are available at most any parts store. If you have any problems just ask, and if you can not find the parts I will give you part numbers. Let me know what you find I will be back tomorrow.
