1999 GMC Sierra 2500 SL 8Cyl6.0L - Engine
Starts great cold. After warmed up, restarts very hard, with bucking.
Fuel pump/sending unit replaced in 03 after being stranded three times. After that truck drove fine every day up till 07 when I got a new van (daily vehicle)
Truck sits a lot now, maybe driven seven times a month.
o2 sensor replaced three days ago. No change. Still fires up instantly in the morning, but after making a few stops during the day ie: store, bank, etc. It cranks but needs the gas pedal pumped a couple times, then starts and runs at very low rpm and bucks almost at the point of stalling. Within a minute it climbs back up and runs normal.
I have been running a higher octane gas as well.
EGR valve?
Another fuel pump assembly?
Fuel injectors?
Never had a complete tune-up. original spark plugs
Fuel filter was changed last year.

    Yes, before the o2 sensor was replaced. Now it's off. The code was telling them that was the problem. Any suggestions much appreciated.
