What would cause a 5.7L V-8 to idle roughly and be sluggish?


Answer by  nate (199)

there could be a couple different things causing it. you could possibly have a clogged up fuel filter, or you might just need a good tune up done to it, spark plugs, wires, distributor cap and rotor.

If problem remains then try changing to a higher octane fuel this usually takes two tanks to feel a difference. The next step is to change to high quality platinum spark plugs and new wires
