Engine Missing Rough Idle?

Asked by Aug 20, 2016 at 06:22 PM about the 1998 GMC Sierra 1500 C1500 SLE Extended Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I've got a '98 GMC Sierra
1500c 5.7 liter. The
engine is missing at 50-
60 mph goes away at
70mph. It happens
mainly when its hot or
its been running for a
while. It has also started
to idle a little rough if
left for more than a few
minutes. I've changed
fuel filter and O2 sensor
bank 2 sensor 2 which
O'Reiley's computer
sugested. I can hear the
fuel pump click on when
turning on the ignitio. It
has gotten better but
still running rough. Any
suggestions?

Missing is related to misfires. Which is related to the ignition system. Check the plugs and wires, distributor, rotor, coil.
