08 Silverado 1500 rough idle!
I recently came across a rough idle in my 2008 silverado 1500 5.3L LT.
Took advice from reader and replaced #2 ignition coil. Nothing.
tried new plugs, oem. Nothing.
I still have that annoying trembling feeling at idle.
Any suggestions?Stay Classy, Wear a Bowtie!

Fuel pump pressure?
low fuel pressure could lead to a lean idle misfire.Lerch

Does it seem to smooth out while your driving? Is the check engine light on? Need more info. You should probably check the compression in each cylinder. If one or two of them have considerable lower compression your truck could have a burnt valve, thats what happened with my 92 Z71, but it had alot of miles on it when it did though. If the check engine light isnt on thats what you need to check first, if it is on you need to check whats causing it to come on and go from there. Im just a "shade tree mechanic" so this is far from expert advise lol, but i have a little experience under my belt.

I guess if your not getting any codes then a few suggestions would be too, clean all the MAF sensors and the throttle body. Since you already replaced the plugs, maybe try and checking the resistance of the wires? Hopefully after doing all this it will eventually go away! Good luck!
