Nope. Only does it after the engine has completely warmed up and cooled off partially.

This is the most TSB's I've ever seen assigned to a single vehicle.
Note that most vehicles will NOT ever have all these problems.
I suggest printing these pages, please NOTE these TSB cover many Engines from 4.8L V8 to the 6.6L to the 8.1L so be patient with your technician.
Take your problematic vehicle to the Biggest OR the Best GM dealer within driving distance, be patient, be nice and be Generous to those who help.

#109 of 151 Thanks for cutting me off

I worked for about 2 hrs posting those TSB's
Only about HALF of them showed up, NO warning from Edmunds that I was running over the text limit.
Anyway folks, follow the link, see if your vehicle meets some of the issues, or better yet, tell your Tech to stop being so cheap and buy an Alldata subscription.
Can yo imagine, looking through 448 TSB
#110 of 151 All those tsbs are available

To.the techs at the dealership. Now whether they take the time to check through them is another story.

I have a 2002 chev with 4.8 litre. In cold weather it idles high and low, also stalls when its really cold. Changed sparkplugs, throttle position sensor, altinator, fuel pump, and still does this. It seems to run better when I unplug the air flow sensor. Just wondering if anyone knows what could be the problem..?

Try cleaning the MAF wire with some carb cleaner.
Do you get any codes ?
2002 Chevrolet "Truck"?
Theres quite a few TSB on the 1500 pickup, several include running conditions..
check them out, and see if your wrench can identify the issue.
Sometimes it's cheaper to let a "good" dealer to diagnose the problem

Jan 18, 2012 (6:16 pm)
you say clean the maf wire with carb cleaner, would that be just the plug in?
the only code that comes up is a misfire on multiple cylinders! yes it is a truck.
#114 of 151 Silverado 2500 HD Cold start issues, bogging down
Jan 29, 2012 (12:12 am)
Ive had this issue for quite some time now. In the mornings after the truck has sat for 8+ hours, I start the truck and the turn over is fine and the engine revs up fine. After the initial start up it begins to bog down, almost as if it is going to die but never does. The RPM's jump back up almost as if you pressed the gas peddal down hard, then idles normal and repeats itself bogging down and back to normal. It has done it a couple times bad enough where it gave me a check engine light but when I leave the driveway it goes away. The only code it throws is a random misfire. After about 10 min, the truck idles fine as if everything is great. No other problems after she warms up. I have checked EVERYTHING (almost)...not a single mechanic can figure out why it is doing this. I have had new plugs, new fuel filter, mass airflow sensor, IAC valve, etc. I have a buddy with one of those code readers and he says everything shows my truck is running fine. he told me to try unplugging my MAF sensor and see what it did, crazy this is....it seemed to make the bogging go away...so I thought that was the problem...NOPE! Can someone PLEASE tell me what this "COULD" be or what could be causing this??? Anything will be helpful! Thanks!
