So each morning as I start the van, it has about 2 minutes where it doesn't feel like it's getting proper acceleration. Now ive hit the road on my way to a wedding in Portland OR. But after a couple hours of driving my van just turns off. So I'm stuck in chemult... Mechanics cant diagnose the issues...

I have changed the fuel filter, and the throttle position sensor, the alternator...

It may be the pick up basket in the tank that is clogged ... does this happen more when you are low on gas ?

It may be a failing coil ... It may be a clogged muffler no air thru no HP out ..does it still have the factory pancake type muffler if so get rid of it .... bad Chevy design.

That pancake muffler turned my 454 into a 125 ....


Tell the mechanics to look at your muffler I bet its clogged

I emailed him/you and he said he has replaced the muffler a while back..... so the question still stands.

Could be any number of things from fuel to ignition, and everything in between. Without a hands on diagnosis, probably not going to figure out what it is by guessing and throwing parts at it. Have you actually taken it to a mechanic physically, or just talked to some? Any updates on it?

My 97 Sierra 1500 stranded me twice, Fuel pump once. A worn distributor cap. Both pretty easy to check. It's still a IC engine. Fuel, or Spark. Good luck.
