HiI have a 2001 Chev. silverado pikup with 4.8 engine. I have what the computer calls a ramdom miss. I have changes the plugs and wires and installed a new fuel filler. I have used injector cleaner. And put heat in the gas tank to take care of any water in the gas. But I still have the ramdom miss. It seams to be more noticeable when going uphill. Can you tell me what the problem is and what needs to be replace? When on the computer all it tells me is a ramdom miss.Thank youLarry ParishVincennes, In.

I have installed new plugs and wires and installed a new gas filter. Cleaned the injectors and put heat in the gas to absorb any water in the tank. None has worked. I still have what the computer a ramdom miss.
