Asked by Mar 18, 2017 at 11:11 AM about the 2001 GMC Sierra 3500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2000 GMC 3500, 5.7 engine when you first start up, you get
1500rpm, then it eventually goes down to 750 rpm. When you come to a stop
at lights,seems to take forever to get down to 750. Then sometimes NO
PROBLEM. When a.c. Kicks in it will SURGE idle. I changed the idle down
switch...no change in problem.
