95 silverado tbi sputter when barely on gas

Asked by May 11, 2016 at 06:52 PM about the 1995 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Silverado Extended Cab SB 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hey guys I just bought my first truck it's a 95 chevy
silverado, it runs great! The only problem I'm
having is when I'm behind a couple cars at a stop
sign and have to barely touch the gas and let off to
inch forward it sputters and almost dies. It also
does it when im in reverse and barely touch the
gas to back. I've asked a lot of people about it but
nobody seems to know the problem. Thanks for
reading. Please let me know of anything you think
it might be. Thanks.

You can do a basic scan on a 1995....Have it read for codes, even if the check engine light is NOT on the computer will have stored information and codes. Discount auto stores will read codes for no fee. write them down.

Ok I will try that thanks!

This could be a few things, one would be dirty injectors, run fuel injection cleaner threw, two would be the Throttle Positioning Sensor on the side of the TBI. That can be taken off and checked at Auto Zone. Another reason could be the fuel regulator is getting weak and need rebuilding, checking fuel pressure could tell the story. Also the EGR valve and system could be having a problem, bad EGR or vacuum leaks.
