98 k1500 Bad shudder
I am new here and am not sure if this topic has came up before.
My wife drives a 98 K1500 5.7. It has 125xxx miles on it. It is completely stock besides a k&N filter and flowmaster mufflers.
We have been dealing with an issue for the past 25XXX miles and can not get it completely solved.
When going up large hills at highway speeds the truck will start to have a bad shudder and lose power and drop about 20mph. If you keep in it, it throws a check engine light. I have not checked the code in a while but it was throwing misfire cylinder 5.
We have changed:
cap and rotor
torque converter lockout solenoid
We also have checked for vacuum leaks and have found nothing.
I'm sure we have replaced other parts just cant think of them.
After replacing the lockout solenoid, the issue went away for a while but has now returned.
Let me know if you have any suggestions

How many times have you cleared and checked the code? Does it always come up P0305 or does it sometimes come up other cylinders or general P0300?
Where the problem shows up while climbing hills, one of my first thoughts is a fuel delivery issue. After climbing, the engine gets starved for fuel and starts to misfire. If you have not yet put a fuel pressure gauge on it, I would do so and see if the fuel pressure is dropping off before it starts to bog/misfire.'98 K1500 Suburban LS 5.7 L 4L60E NV246 ARB
