I've got a 1993 Chevrolet k1500 4wd 5.7L. The engine
is sluggish, hiccups at take off and will delay and hesitate for a few seconds then take off...studdering for a few seconds. I put new spark plugs
, wires, cap and rotor but didn't check out anything further. One side has a stripped hole where you tighten down the cap. I purchased a new distributor thinking it will clean up the poor performance. On a slight incline the truck shifts down to 3rd and doesn't like to maintain speed. I believe its underpowered right now...possibly needs the timing set. Not 100% sure and I haven't done it before. Have some mechanical knowledge though
JA: How many miles are on the car? When did you last check the plugs?
Customer: 243k. Plugs are ac delco, installed around 2 months ago. No misfire, check engine, or consumption of oil
JA: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: yes. I put new spark plugs, wires, cap and rotor
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: that should cover it]
