Customer Question
I have a 1996 chevy...
I have a 1996 chevy 1500 with a 5.7. It has a high idle all the time. We have replaced everything can think of and even work with Identifix on it and replaced what they suggested and still have high idle. Have already replaced IAC valve, Temp sensor, fuel pressure regulator, egr valve, map sensor and even tried another throttle body. Any other suggestions??
