1998 GMC Sonoma Q&A
1998 GMC Sonoma Question: Could a faulty EGR valve cause the car to "miss" or "starve" the engine of gas?
My truck has been seemingly "missing" or "starving" for about 4 months now. It seems to drive ok then, during acceleration, it seem to "miss" and semi "jerk" the entire vehicle - as though the engine simply isn't getting enough fuel to continue the acceleration process. Also, the CHECK ENGINE is lighting up on occasion. I assumed it was either clogged injectors or an old fuel filter so I replaced the filter but before I spent the grand on new injectors I was told about this EGR valve thing. Since this is a MUCH cheaper fix I was intrigued as to the validity of this as a solution. Any ideas? - antman33
You need to get a computer diagnostic. It will take you closer to the problem and don't have to guess. It might cost you about $100 but could save you a lot more on unnecessary parts and labor. Zee - ZeeTech
