Truck not running right

Asked by GuruSRM23 Jun 13, 2019 at 02:02 PM about the Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My truck all of the sudden died for the first time the
other  day while sitting at a stop light. The next day
it acted like I was going to die while I was slowing
down to make a turn but then just snapped out of it
and ran fine for 2 days. Today I drove it and now its
acting like it wants to die but doesnt....it shakes
when I first give it gas to go and doesn't have much
power till I get my speed up...any ideas what could
be wrong? I have a 1994 Chevy Silverado k1500

what do the plugs look like , wires cap and rotor ? Try an octane booster/injector cleaner , spray some carb. cleaner down the throttle , Look for a motor to chassis ground . loose broken vacuum lines , mice can invade even a daily driver .

Ok thank u will check all those things... are the any tips or tricks I should know when taking out plugs? Dont want them to break off
