Question type: General

I know it is the system that turns 4 cylinders on and off.  But, what does it stand for?

Active Fuel Management. Horable idea now. And back in the 1980's when Government Motors called it 4-6-8.

Yes, it was a Cadillac exclusive in 1981. My Sister had it on her '81 Eldorado. It was the V8 368 cubic inch. Cadillac called it the V8-6-4. Her's worked fine but most didn't. It really did improve gas mileage when it worked. I'd suggest leaving it alone. You're probably still under warranty. HTH. -Jim

It's more a question. I just bought a 2011 Silverado V6 5.3L Crew Cab, and when I get to about 60 mph my truck starts to do this rev or something is switching on or off in the engine! The rpm's are going up slightly! Is this the AFM causing this?
