popping and jerking and skipping


Asked by Mar 03, 2014 at 02:15 PM about the 1996 GMC Sierra 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1996 Gmc Sierra and we have replaced the ignition coil and o2 censors and it is still skipping and popping and Jerking when in take off. But when you are on the gas it is not that bad but when you let off the gas it is horrible. Any suggestions of what could cause this?

1 Answer


Check your distributer, I have had this problem and found the rotor cap and the inside of the distributer to be corroded, especially if the truck sets outside in the weather.
