Bad cat, o2's and plenum can all cause misfire problems. When my cat went the engine would not rev over 3k without sputtering like it was flooding or out of fuel. If you change your cat change the o2's or you could be doing it again sooner than later.

i have the cat and o2 sensors. they are sooooo trashed that i had to drill holes in the y pipe to let more exhaust flow but the screens in the cat have cleared up. i dont wanna jump right into replacing them tho without knowing if the plenum or injectors are at fault.... what should i look for? it seems like i have all the power the motor offers and it never skips or sputters. sometimes i idles rough or starts wierd tho

Does it idle real low when you're having the issue?

A new IAC is around $45.00

Take a look down inside the throttle body to see if there's any moisture/residue. The intake has a separate pan gasket bolted to the bottom of the intake under the throttle body



if the gasket is bad you'll notice moisture there the plenum gasket is leaking and can cause a host of problems.

yea i did notice a little moisture in there... but not really any oil consumption. and idk if it has anything to do with the plenum gasket but when the trucks in gear driving, theres a whistling/whirring noise under light acceleration. i cant hear anything else once i get on it more cuz the trucks loud. and how hard is it to replace the plenum gasket? i think i might just do it for the hell of it

Sounds to me like your main focus should be the IAC.

It's the one on the back of the throttle body, two bolts (torx) one plug, and $40.00.

You;ll have to pull the intake off. As the picture shows, it's boltedfrom underneath.

yea im gunna have to go make a big order at autozone soon.. the plenum gaskets pretty cheap and so is the iac.. i need brakes bad too...... but now back to where this thread started started the truck up leaving a parking lot today, put her in drive, made it 2 feet then just stalled and wouldnt start back up. just put the new fuel pump in last week.... pump runs when i turn the key but no fuels coming through the lines... took the line off the fuel rail and blew thru the line with compressed air and it went through t into the tank... so nothings stuck in the lines or draw straw... truck has a 1/4 tank and has been working fine since the new pump was installed... im guessing the draw straw fell or curled up or something? any ideas?
