Question about 1997 Chevrolet Suburban
1500 suburban, engine misses badly under load, eg uphill or towing boat. Scan shows "number 6 misfire," all elec checked ok, so I did compression check; #6 less than 25 lbs! Valve stuck open? is only fix a valve job? What will I have to spend if valve job needed?
Thanks in advance!
I have had the same problem on several chevrolets in the past. The problem was either a broke rocker on the valve trane or the most common is a flat cam lobe. A flat cam lobe will not let the valve open fully or not at all.
