So, I've been dealing with this issues for a few years, but it has gotten worse. The car will start and run, but then it will randomly drop the RPM's by about 50-100 and feel kind of like it is misfiring. For a long time, just keping the RPM's above 1000 while idle would keep it from dying, but now it will die frequently. I've replaced both the crankshaft position sensor and the camshaft position sensor. I've replaced the timing chain (I read somewhere this can happen from a stretched chain), Ignition control, plugs, boots, and coils have all be tested. Fuel filter and catalytic converter have been replaced as well. When it first started happening I took it to a Chevrolet dealer and they replaced a few things and then they told me I need a new engine (this was 4 years ago). It passed safety and emissions for 4 years after, I find it hard to believe that it could be the engine or reluctor wheel if it has been running for that long. Any ideas on what else to try?
have the same problem?
