This will depend on what your symptoms are. i would like to discuss this with you over a chat. there are many question i need answers to before i can give you a good answer. i will say at this time, if you are experiencing massive misfiring in multiple cylinders then. i would suggest a look at the valve springs and valve seal as well.

5.7 vortec multiple misfires

I'm with you leaning on a maf/sensor, also be sure to clean out the Idle Air control...usually hand in hand...another issue could be "bad gas" did your GMC sit for any period of time? Try adding two bottles of gas tank injector cleaner...I prefer the STP super concentrated in the black bottle...Walmart is definitely the cheapest for these bottles by 2 or 3 bucks...Hope this helps.

Have you changed the plugs, if any are fouled out or if any are worn, it takes more to fire it under load and may be spark knocking because one of the plugs can't fire off all the gas and cause it to skip or idle rough.

1998 Honda Accord transmission problem

This transmission have shift solenoids that are mounted on the outside in my personal experience I have rectified shift problem with these transmissions by simply change a solenoid or two. My recommendation is to put this vehicle on a code scanner and find out what is at fault first. If its a solenoid just replace, they are a dealer only part and that should take care of your problem. Good Luck and thanks for using FIX YA
