at4 with 6.2 rough idle


Recommended Posts

Mine does it once in a while and it is annoying but I do not want to take it back just for that.  I read to run some premium gas in it.  The 6.2L engines love higher octane gasoline.  I am on my third tank of Sunoco 93 octane.  I can say it is better but still hick ups once in a while.  BUT on the good side I am seeing the best fuel mileage since I bought the truck, generally over 20MPG on the highway at 75 - 80MPH.

I have a 2020 GMC Sierra with the 6.2L and its also been idling rough.  I notice it after the dreaded auto stop feature starts the engine.  Not sure what is the issue but I can tell its rough.  I have about 5.900 km on the truck and it started to run rough at idle about 1500km's ago.  At that time I also noticed that when starting it up after it has been sitting overnight I get a puff of blue smoke when I remote start it.  I figured it was the valve guides but hoped it wasn't the piston rings as a worst case scenario.    When I took it into the dealer they diagnosed it was bad valve guides.  I am waiting for the new guides to be shipped in from the US which could take a month because of the pandemic.  Having said that, the problem could be  fouled spark plug because of the oil burning off after I do a cold start.   Use the remote start and stand behind the truck when it starts up and see if you get the blue smoke when you do a cold start in the morning.  The dealer without hesitation said they would replace all the guides on both heads just to be safe.  If you are having a similar problem and the dealer tells you its your valve guides make sure you get all of the guides changed not just the one or two that are leaking.  I am also going to have the spark plug changes in the cylinder that is the issue.IMG_4056.thumb.JPG.f252e6d4a24e973e62db87f4135e20f8.JPG

 

Good luck

Mine is the same way.  It idles terribly almost like it’s gonna die or a misfire.  Had it in the shop twice and they says it’s normal. Love the truck but seriously thinking of getting rid of it because it drives me crazy.  Come on GM !!’ This is terrible… it’s 2021 lol you would think a brand new truck would idle smooth
