Chevy Mechanic: Gary, Chevy Technician replied 7 months ago

have you had the codes pulled yet ?

any Firestone or Pep Boys or a place like that will scan the codes for free

the odds are it will be a P0300 code range set

which means there is a cylinder or two dead causing this issue and with those codes it will illuminate the stability and the traction control lights as with a misfire those systems can not operate and are shut off until the engine codes are fixed

usually on these it is a bad coil or spark plug or fuel injector causing the issue..without testing compression ect those are the normal issues causing this problem
