    99 K1500 suburban. 350 engine. Engine revs up only if slow acellerator push but if sudden depress of gas pedal then engine seems to stop increasing in rpm and kind of diesels and stays at that rpm until you let off and slowly depress to increase. Does this on highway and also just in park. Any help?

    how many miles on this? my first though is fuel. Fuel filter change at all recently or maybe you need it done.

    Fuel filter and or injectors. My 89 was sort of doing that and I had to replace two of the injectors along with the fuel filter.

    Mine is a 1999 with 180k miles and it kind of does the same thing. It will drive fine, but I have to baby the pedal... I can't just womp on it for WOT speed. I thought it might be the trans getting old, but I haven't done the fuel filter yet. We'll see if the fuel filter does any good on mine.

    If it's not that, make sure you give your injectors a good looking over. Like I said before, 2 of my injectors were barely even functioning and acting somewhat simliar to what you're saying. After I changed them out I was amazed at how much extra power I had along with making some of my tranny issues dissapear.
    Mine is a TBI FWIW.

    Interesting... I seem to have power, but maybe there is more to be had?!? Mine is tbi as well. It's a pretty average 5.7L just like all the rest. Anyone have a good link to a replacement injector?

    Not sure about links.......I got mine locally. But there's lots of choices to choose from if you do a search.

    I did more reading and research on clogged injectors in suburbans, then I studied the way my truck drove a bit closer. I think that might be my problem and not something trans-related. I'm going to find a way to hopefully clean mine. If that doesn't work, I'll replace them. It more or less bogs down at WOT.

    You might also want to look into the fuel regulator when you clean or replace the injectors. I replaced mine at the same time just to be safe.
