Try and find, first of all, a hotter plug. Second of all, I'd watch your dipstick very close. Add a hotter (210F) thermostat, get it hot quicker. Finally, if all else fails, you may need to put on new valve guides, or check your rings. ... 1992 Chevrolet K1500

2000 Chevy 3500 7.4l (454) has misfires no power at all. Somtimes it will run fine with a small misfire. Then going down road it will get worse and can't get out of its own way. This does not happen all the time. Sometimes it will just have a small misfire and is drivable for a week then you start it and as soon as go drive it has no power runs real rough. This is what has been done to it. New cap,plugs,wires,rotor,fuel injectors,fuel pressure regulator,icm,coil,,fuel lines from tank to fuel ra

Also I unplug the injector n4 the rpm did not alter,seems that this injector is not working, but there is spark on this n4. the car runs roughly. All sensors and wires are fine, what else is happening?
