96 chevy 1500 not running well when first started.

Asked by Dec 19, 2016 at 03:03 PM about the 1996 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Cheyenne Extended Cab LB RWD

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

This is an odd issue. My 96 chevy 1500 recently had the
anti freeze flushed and changed. Has been running great
since. About a week. Then Saturday morning I had to
drive in the snow storm. got where I was headed and
turned the car off. 3 hours later the problem started when
I turned me car on. It started fine but the engine was
stuttering for lack of better term and wouldn't get passed
30-40 mph. After letting it run and driving around the
parking lot it started running fine. Now the passed 4 times
I've started it it's done the same thing. 5 minutes or so of
troubled stuttering and then it works fine. Tried warming
the car up first and it makes no difference.

This time of year there is high ethonal content in fuel. I would go ahead and change the fuel filter and check the condition of the plugs and add some injection cleaner to the tank. You may also want to clean the throttle body...
