I have a 2000 Oldsmobile bravada with a 4.3, It had a small
misfire around 65 or 70 mph. I changed the plugs, wires,
distriutor, cap, rotor and ignition coil. It has a worse misfire
now at low idel but runs fine at highway speeds. It has a
p0452 code along with the common p3000 random misfire
code. Can anyone help with my problem??? Im in dire need
to get this fixed!

Buy a remanufactured distributor or better yet a GOOD MSD distributor unit, wear and tolerances are allowing it to have sloppy rotor control, and timing. This causing random misfires. Regards Not really dire, lol

I bought a brand new one, and it is dire due to the fact i have almost thrown eveything including the kitchen sink at it
