No problem, it isn't exactly easy to check those, and as much as I hate to say it a lot of people don't have the skill to do that kind of work.

No shame in admitting that. That can save you a lot of headache and it can leave you way better off in the end. There is a reason my Dad, who is a genious, he has a 177 IQ or something like that doesn't work on cars, he doesn't do well with it. But he built roads, bridges and does awesome wood working. Also an electrical guru. Cars aren't for him lol

hey do you have a egr when i took my throttle body and top half of the intake today where the egr plugs into intake manifode was clogged up so you might wanna take the egr and make sure yours isnt stopped up the egr allows the air to go back in there to when lack of o2 is happening which could cause sputtering

I just saw a thing today that had to do with the IAC on the intake by the throttle body. Check that, it's a little silver canister on the side of the throttle body.

Ok, i do have an EGR, a friend of mine said it could be that as well. What should i check for? Should i just take it off and blow out the junk if its clogged or do i have to buy a new one? I pulled the solenoid off that looked ok but the pipe that runs into the manifold and to the egr, the end that goes into the EGR is pretty rusted.

Check the price, for me if it's cheap enough just replace it. That's my 2 cents

the damn thing is $100 just for the egr not including the the sensor which is another 20 or 30 depending. After you take it off the main place you want to check for deposit build up is in the intake itself, take some cleaner then A small screw driver or awl to make sure all the carbon is cleaned out.This is a small whole so make sure you use something small to penetrate all the way through. The pipe going down to the exhaust manifode shouldnt be stopped up useally if it stops up it burns a hole in them and does your check engine light come on every now again.

ok, the egr is off, the pipe going to the manifold doesnt look too bad, but there is carbon in there. I found new egr's on ebay for 83.00 including shipping. If i took an air compressor to the pipe going to the manifold can it mess up anything in there?

no, hints the word exhaust, and just to let you know my little 93 was doing the exact same thing yours is doing and i checked every thing and replaced everything after several hundred dollars later it ended up being the burnt valves, so after the egr thing if it isnt cleard up i would def do a compression test on it and i mean no and ifs or buts, i wouldve saved bunches of money if i wouldve just done that instead of convincing my self it was something else.because i had 2 burnt valves and i was still driving my truck every where
