2002 Chevy Trailblazer 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 135000 miles
A few weeks ago I changed the factory spark plugs on my 2002 Chevrolet Trailblazer. The truck has 135,000 miles on it and it has been running perfectly. The plugs were only changed as routine maintenance. I changed the original factory plugs with Bosch Platinum 2+ plugs, everything went fine.
Since changing those plugs, the engine misfires and sputters intermittently for up to 15 minutes after the truck is first started. A few odd things to note, everything is fine(as I notice) at idle(when not in gear) and when up to speed. The problem is only evident when the vehicle is in gear and if it is not moving and it goes away after 10 minutes or so of travel. The problem is most evident when I first back out of my driveway, and when I have to stop at the first first stoplight less than a mile away. After this, all is good.
Have any of you experienced such a thing? Can you provide any input or help?
I am starting to think, the plugs or just not good in my truck, but I have read elsewhere that this is ridiculous, and the guys at Autozone say the same. I did not keep the original plugs and haven't purchased any more plugs to try.I appreciate any input!
have the same problem?
