Customer reply replied 2 years ago
the problem started very suddenly while driving and had a flashing CEL. The vehicle is now non drivable in my driveway. It does Idle but very rough and flashing CEL sometimes
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
seems to run smoother reved up in drive way. as it starts getting warm you can hear it pinging under the truck
GMC Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 2 years ago

Unplug front oxygen sensors and let me know if vehicle runs better.
Ask Your Own GMC Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I don't want to bias a response but I had been running the vehicle very low on fuel for a long time. 5 dollars here and there. when it first hiccupped I thought I was out of fuel. limped to gas station and put fuel. no help
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
What would that be causing (the front o2)
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
almost forgot I had been driving in very heavy rain. Vehicle ran fine when parked. Parked about 4 hours. Then drove 2 minutes and problem started.
GMC Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 2 years ago
If one of the front oxygen sensors are failing it can cause this problem. Your fuel pressure is very borderline also. Does engine almost run perfect if keeping rpm up or only a little better?
Ask Your Own GMC Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
It runs mildly better while keeping the RPM's up
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I'm headed out to unplug the sensors
GMC Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 2 years ago
Ok, thanks.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I'm back. No JOY same problem
GMC Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 2 years ago
Disconnect battery for 10 minutes to reset fuel trim and see if that changes anything leaving sensors disconnected. If that doesn't change anything remove fuel pump relay and see how vehicle runs when spraying fuel alone into throttle body.

I did notice that at Idle the CEL flashes when reved it stays solid
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
sorry it took so long somebody put a drive shaft right in the way of one of the sensor plugs
GMC Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 2 years ago
These vehicles are common for intake gasket leaks which can cause it to run rough, but not usually this rough. Let me know, thanks.
Ask Your Own GMC Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
One more piece of info. when the problem first started I did notice the master brake cylinder making noises when I pressed the brake pedal hard. I unplugged the vacuum line to it which allowed more air into the intake manifold and it idled much better.
GMC Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 2 years ago
That makes me think maybe you should make sure the air filter is not clogged. If good, still continue with above.
Ask Your Own GMC Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Filter not clogged removed completely to make sure. Oh yea I even took off the electronic throttle body and cleaned it. I did not move the butter fly valve
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I will not be able to do the next step until tomorrow evening ish. will that be ok for you.
GMC Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 2 years ago
Ok, then continue with disconnecting battery for 10 minutes to reset fuel trim then leave sensors disconnected. If it still runs rough remove fuel pump relay and see how it runs on fuel sprayed into throttle body. I'll talk to you tomorrow, that is fine. Thanks.
