    My 89 Jimmy (350)hesitates when I first start it up. It seems to go away after driving for a little while (5 minutes), but it never completely goes away. Just recently we fixed the timing, put a new fuel filter on, and changed the transmission oil. Does the hesitation have something to do with the spark plugs or spark plug wires? Anything else it could be? Thanks for any help.

    My 87 Also does the same thing. I really dunno what it is.. I just rev the engine right after start it up (I have some bad valve seals.. so I blow smoke) to clear the oil.. usually it runs fine after that... I was thinking maybe it was my tranny frying... but my 700 is fine.

    Check the idle air control solenoid for carbon build up. It is screwed into the back of the throttle body.
