Still a slight rough idle

35

Asked by Jun 25, 2007 at 05:19 PM about the 1985 Chevrolet Suburban

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I changed the carb...the holley was leaking gas at the secondary...also had a stuck float....not bad for a new carb.
The new holley works better and doesn't leak....just did a complete tune-up and oil change....this is a rebuilt engine (350 small block)
with 25,000 miles on it....I'm wondering if their is something internal that may cause this problem.....HELP!!!!!!!!!!!

    Rough idle when in gear or park. New plugs, wires, fuel pressure sensor. Check engine light on & sometimes blinks.

    Engine will not run under a load. Could this be an exhaust problem? Where is the catalytic converter located? I have the 5.7L. I have tuned it up. Changed most sensors. And swapped ECM.
