5.7 fuel problem


Asked by Oct 04, 2013 at 12:10 PM about the Chevrolet C/K 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 5.7 litter motor in a 1998 z71 chevy p/u. My gas millage is terrible and it misses as I'm going down the road. My millage is 320,145 miles well kept with real no problems till now.

1 Answer


Is the check engine light on? Have you had the compression checked? Possible intake manifold gasket failure. Possible fuel spyder problem. You said it was well maintained so I assume that the cap, rotor, plugs and wires have been replaced.
