1996 GMC 2500 Pickup ProblemsEngine Misfire Due to Worn Valve Seat
The engine may develop a misfire due to worn valve seats. This fault will cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. Our technicians tell us the misfire may or may not be felt while driving. They further recommend that both cylinder heads be removed and thoroughly inspected and repaired as necessary.
Illumination of the Check Engine Light can be caused by a loose or worn gas cap.
One or more fuel injectors may become stuck closed causing an engine misfire and the Check Engine Light to illuminate. Our technicians tell us that this problem can be caused by some fuel additives.
