  • Truck Surging Idle in Drive while stopped...

    It surges from about 300-600 rpms only in drive at idle, such as stopped at a red light. I read somewhere that it may be the distributor. Any truth to this? If so, how do I check/fix it?

    Thanks,

    What year if it is a 96 up ... could be mass air flow sensor.
    Clean it see if it helps.

      My truck did that and after replacing a bunch of things I finally figured out it was the fuel pressure regulator,the diaphragm was leaking.

        Try cleaning/ replacing the idle air control, on my 97 it would only surge with the a/c on and I replaced the iac and problem solved

          Its a 97. I just cleaned the MAF, but dont have time to drive it tonight. We will see in the morning if that was the culprit. I hope so. The screen was dirty but not bad. If it keeps surging, I'll have the shop look at it.

          Thanks

              Still doing it. Tech at work said it sounds like a vacuum leak. He's gonna look at it on Monday.

              Thanks

                Scanner said MAF is not functioning properly. Tech said the truck is running very rich. Does this make sense? Would a MAF sensor on the fritz make the idle fluctuate only in drive? Is there more?

                    Swapped in another MAF from a different truck and brought it home... still doing it. Any other thoughts guys? I doubt both of us have bad MAF sensors.

                    Thanks

                      Said it is running rich.. maybe coolant temp sensor... or 02 sensor.
                      Sometimes will not bring a code. A bad map or loose vacuum will cause surging.

                        97 vortec common issues: maybe leaking fuel poppets or fuel regulator. intake gasket, poppets ever replaced?

                          Yes, I know this is an OLD post, but I'm having the exact same issue on my 99 OBS K1500 tahoe. It's happens every couple of stops while in D at a stop.

                          To the OP, did you ever figure out what caused your issue?
