#1 of 7 95 LT Vortec random misfire
Jul 11, 2010 (6:35 am)
Hot or cold, most of the time it misfires, sometimes it actually drives smooth. I even went on a day trip to another town. It drove smooth the whole time! Usually, though, the opposite is true.
This has been an ongoing problem. New cap, wires, plugs, EGR, TPS. _lots_ of fuel system cleaner, and none of these things have solved the problem.
If I punch it, it will get up and go. (It seems to do just great~ that's why I was hoping the TPS was to blame...)
It's when I drive "normal" that it acts up.

i had a similar problem some years back with my 2000 Blzaer. replaced the same items and even went as far as reploacing the distributor assy. turns out that i was getting moisture inside the cap from a crack in it. check ur distributor for cracks or make sure the seal is good on the cap/distributor

When you changed the wires, did you also change the coil to distributor wire? The routing of this wire takes it against a metal bracket, and can damage the insulation causing a misfire.

If you wouldn't mind taking a look at what we've posted this far, to get somewhat, of an idea of what we're talking about, that would be great. We're looking for some ideas on the issue that is at hand. Please let me know if you've got any suggestions on this issue.

Here's the thing. Since it has become MUCH colder here, the problem has all but vanished. Ideas?
I chalk it up to being a self healing Chevy, but I'm sure there is a much better, mechanical or electrical explanation.
I hope this will help pinpoint whatever was making it act like it had "pondwater" for fuel.
Oh~ I also quit using WalMart's fuel. Related?
I only bring this up, because I used to drive 60 miles per day, and that is where I would get my gas. (plain unleaded) Then when I got my new job here in town, it sat for months. As I would only drive it now and then, it would have taken a long time to remove the deposits that cheap fuel would leave behind.
Just grasping at straws here...
