Chevrolet Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
let me know if the vehicle has been checked for trouble codes. If you have access to a scanner with live data let me know too. I just picked up a good one from launch for 35$, there is a bunch out there for around 50$. I would start with checking and cleaning the IAC and the throttle body bore. I use a soft pipe brush and throttle spray cleaner. Next I would check and clean the EGR, they can stick open a cause a vacuum leak. I would clean the MAF(mass air flow) sensor too, it combines the IAT(intake air temp) , if it is contaminated it could cause running issues like this.
I would like to see what the coolant temp sensor is reading. let me know what has been done as far as a tune or maintenance.
important to get the injector poppets cleaned, fuel injection service.
