i have a 2000 chevy tahoe and a had the same problem just go to any auto parts and buy a throtle body cleaner remove your intake hose and spray it real good in your throtle body, and it will take care of the problem.

Mine started when I changed to synthetic oil. Was my first oil change. They should extend our warranties on this engine.

I've got a '99 silverado 1500, and it runs very irradic. under very slow acceleration it's fine but if i get on it at all it stumbles and falls on its face. Also when cruising down the road it runs fine until I start going up hill, then it starts to stumble again until i hit the gas and kick it into another gear. This truck also wants to die when i shift from R to D. This is very aggravating... It seems like the cooler the temperature gets the better this thing runs.. any help would be greatly appreciated

2006 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE 5.3L V8 Vortec - 1st owner
-I feel a rough idle while in park or stopped during travel. new plugs and wires, new air filter, cleaned throttle body and added fuel injector cleaner.
-I'm unable to locate a PCV or EGR valve. I've been told that my particular vehicle does not have a PCV valve.

Clean or replace your idle air controller.

Unfortunately my sierra is a later model which does not have a IAC. Thank you for the reply
