Missing and rough idle an misfire
This truck came with the "poppet style" injectors. When I experienced that "miss", I bought a new injector unit only to discover that the poppet style hade already been replaced before I bought the vehicle at 171000 miles. The "new" injectors were perhaps just dirty and did not respond to any cleaning efforts. Once replaced, it ran WAY better, had more power and got a little better fuel economy. It was an AC Delco unit but shorted out an injector so I replaced that with a Delphi unit.
