There is a common issue with the throttle body motor on this vehicle. I can say with 90% confidence that you will need a new throttle body assembly. The part number is: 13105809 and sells for $576.04 from any Chevy dealer. However, you can order one from for $322.58. However, if you plan to replace it yourself, you will have to perform a "relearn" procedure once the new part is installer. I can tell you how to do that if you like. Is this a job you are going to tackle yourself?
