My 88 jimmy is currently in the shop now for the same thing. The exhaust valve seats were bad but that didn't fix it 100%... But there was some broken grounds... If u figure it out I would lik to know what it was

Pull valve covers.Jimmy is good for broken rocker [real cheap to repair] push rod comes partially through causing exhaust valve to not vent. On intake when intake valve opens pressure releases through intake.Seen this often
