Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
139000 and yes just two weeks ago
Chevy Mechanic: Tim's Auto Repair, mechanic replied 3 years ago
ok
sense there are no trouble codes,and,from the way you explain,,this could be a couple of things..
1-perhaps the new crank sensor is bad
2-it is possible that the maf sensor is bad
3-i have seen a bad ect[engine coolant temperature] sensor do this and not give a code.and this will flood the engine.
it is strange that it is running the badly and not giving a code.
i would think that a cam sensor would give a 341-343 code.
