Rough idle, Car shakes, sputters and misfires upon acceleration

I have a chevy silverado - 5.7 engine. It runs rough, wont idle and most time dies unless i pop it in neutral, shakes and sputters when i accelerate and not much power. I have replaced the air filter, gas filter, ERG valve, ERG relay, spark plugs, wires, rotor, cap, PCV valve and hose going from PCV to intake and vacuum hoses on intake.

Acceleration problem When the car is warm there is problem trying to accelerate. It sputters and shakes and in some cases it stalls out. It runs fine at idle speed. When I give it gas nice and slowly there is no problem with the motor but the minute that I give it more gas at a faster rate it starts to sputter and hesitate. Many people have been saying fuel filter, but this situation only happens once the car gets to a warm temperature. When I first start the car there is no hesitation on the ga

SInce idler was replaced, I would suggest A/C Pulley myself. They do get worn out from use as well as altenator pulley. then it could be the shaft itself, or the voltage regulator is not putting out enough power. ... 2002 Nissan Altima

My 93 GMC Suburban has recently started to sputter and act like it doesn't want to go as fast as quick as it use to.... What is wrong? It kinda shakes a little when idling


I assume it is a 5.7L V8, LO5 RPO. I would start with diagnosis of a misfire, Autozone can do this for free with a scan tool. Second, spark plug wires are notorious for degrading with heat over time--may be a wire. First, get it on a scan tool and ... 1993 GMC Suburban

My Windstar is reading lean on the left and right banks, and a misfiring plug. I have replaced plugs and wires, put in a new coil, a new ERG valve, a new manifold, new plentum gaskets and am still having issues with sporatic shaking at around 25, 45, & 65 MPH. I don't think it is the transmission, because it also sputters sometimes at idle. Any ideas?
