truck hesitates while stopped sometimes

Asked by May 14, 2015 at 04:45 PM about the 2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS Crew Cab 2WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

truck will hesitate sometimes at a stop, or while idling, and once it get going it runs fine.
while running on the highway i have no problems, when it hesitates it gives off a lean gas
smell, and like it has a miss until you get to a certain speed and it runs fine, until you get
to the next stop, and sometimes the next stop it will run fine.
