gas will float on water
if the fuel is good and smells good can you perform a compression test on all 8 cylinders ?

It's new gas and both hot and cold
Chevy Mechanic: Tim's Auto Repair, mechanic replied 2 years ago
how many miles is on it?
did you replace the plugs and wires?
Ask Your Own Chevy Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
139000 and yes just two weeks ago
Chevy Mechanic: Tim's Auto Repair, mechanic replied 2 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.
