Sounds like it could use a whole tune up plugs will do it and wet or damp ignition parts when its idling listen under the hood and u should hear the miss my 96 Tahoe did it until I did a complete tune up with true OEM parts I used all ac delco and its purrs now

plugs were changed to iridium about 30k ago, wires about 40k ago, but i will check any way thank u,
