Default LT1 intermittant miss....

really bad at idle, skip maybe one or two cyl....then smooth out, and then skip one/two.......sometimes bad enough to kill engine, especially if I in neutral then put it in gear.....engine stumbles/dies....unless I really quick on gas.....

I did the plugs, wires seem fine and up top easily seen, cap/rotor look ok,.....

any clues?? cap/coil/button?? or maybe ign chip/control chip?? or sending coil under it all that takes pulling the dizzy and popping it all apart??

If it gets better after it warms up the o2'S can be bad and not show a code. While your under there pull the knock sensors and do a proper flush you won't believe the crap in there. Just pinch the connectors with your fingers to disconnect.

It does have headers, H pipe back to Magnaflows in rear, I don't hear any header leaking.....I have not taken a temp reading on the tubes yet, maybe I do that tmrw...I have an IR gun for that.....

If the knocks have never been pulled it is full of crap. A bit of a design flaw. Even if you pull the hose you will have a gallon or so still in there and will most likely need to poke around in there to break the crap out. Between old or upstream leaks on o2's and blocked knocks it could do what you are experiencing.

pulled the coil outta the cap, and surprise, looked like moisture in there....WTF?? maybe it could have been oil mist....at any rate, cap, rotor, coil, chip and it seemed to run much better....drove it around quite a bit, not purrfect, but better....

so I going to measure the pipes and look around tmrw...

I dunno watt to do now, so going to just run the engine in hopes those plastic parts about the size/mass of my little fingernail will just burn out and the engine will settle down.....the thought of tearing it all down for a valve job is just BS at this point.....

It makes me wonder if I installed those injectors, or someone did a swap on me......long story behind that thought......
