My car has recently developed a stutter when I drive. While in neutral, the idle seems fine, it dips some from time to time though. But when I start to move the car noticeably starts to stutter a bit, it comes and goes some, but it does it on all gears, and is most noticeable when going up hills. I've already tried replacing the spark plugs, distributor cap, and rotor/ignigtion button, and I've added Gum Out to my tank when I filled up last friday. But it's still giving me some problems. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

It sounds like you have at least one cylinder severely misfiring. The first thing your going to have to do is determine which cylinder is misfiring and then do a compression test. You mentioned ignition parts you replaced but I didn't see wires. That would be the first thing to look at.

Response From cogwork

Yes, wires were next on my list, but I wanted to get some opinion from people who know more than me about this kind of thing to. I appreciate it.

Response From Hammer Time

Replace the wires and if you still have a problem after that, then locate the cylinder and check the compression.

Question From Jonathan Gibson on 1990 5.7 350 chevy RWD C1500

I NEED HELP!!! My truck has a shake.. it runs smooth till you put it in drive. once you take off it shakes and acts like its choked out or restrained. and when you get in it hard it acts like it can't pick up or get the air or fuel it need and then shifts hard along with the hard shake... I have grate fuel pressure oil pressure and not over heating.. I've replaced the fuel filter under the frame rail new fuel injections and filters new plugs plug wires set timing new distributor cap new throttle positioning sensor the trans has been rebuilt new torque converter and all new fluids.. I'm at a lose here its driving me nuts I NEED HELP before I go broke and crazy

Response From Discretesignals

How many miles on this engine? You should first perform a compression check. Make sure the battery if fully charged, the distributor connector is unplugged, and you have the throttle wide open when you do your compression check. Write down your numbers and post them in here.

Response From Jonathan Gibson

the compression is good.. I just can't find why its acting smothered out could the o2 sensor make it do this?? or could it be the mass airflow or map??

Response From Discretesignals

So you tested the compression already? What numbers did you get?

Response From Jonathan Gibson

not sure on the numbers but the man I had look at it said compression and fuel pressure was vary good that it could be my throttle position sensor took it home and replaced it and same stuff

Response From Discretesignals

Just wondering because if you have compression problems, that will affect everything else. The fuel injection system on that engine relies on engine vacuum to calculate injection and ignition timing. If you have low or erratic manifold vacuum because of engine mechanical problems, you be chasing ghosts replacing sensors.

Response From Jonathan Gibson

if its a vacuum line wouldn't it cause the truck to rev faster or almost die??

Response From Discretesignals

A vacuum leak will probably cause high idle, but shouldn't cause it to die or bog on acceleration.


If you are sure you have good fuel pressure/volume and the engine is mechanically sound, testing for excessive back pressure would be something to check out. Does this have headers/dual exhaust or is it on manifold and Y pipe?

Response From Jonathan Gibson

yes I have a set of custom hooker headers that go into an x pipe then into to 44 flow masters that dump half bed

Response From Discretesignals

Cats are gone? Are there any other mods on this engine?

Response From Jonathan Gibson Top Rated Answer

high rise intake new rods valves rockers springs 292 thumper comp cam iron eagle crank and punched 30 over with a performance throttle body and 40 lb injectors I've done all of this last year and the truck ran like a sewing machine till three days ago

Response From Discretesignals

Could be a misfire causing your issue if it is shaking and lacks power. If you brake torque the engine, can you duplicate the misfire/shaking? With the big cam it is kind of hard to pick out misfires at idle. You could do a power balance test by disabling spark for each cylinder one at a time while the shaking is going on. The cylinder that doesn't make a difference is the one that is missing.
