Your Sierra also has a dedicated ignition coil and ignition wire associated with each cylinder. These need to be tested to see if the are operating properly. If they are you must then check your fuel system for proper pressure and your fuel injectors for proper operation. You could wast alot of time & money changing parts but I recommend having it checked out professionally.
