5.3 Engine shutter at low rpm

Recommended Posts

I have a 2011 chevy silverado with 5.3L. Recently it has started having a engine shutter at low rpm. Idles fine and when under mid to high acceleration but when running at highway speeds (low rpm's) it has a engine shutter. When you accelerate a litte it goes away. Would a older low battery cause this? Has anyone else had this problem?

Bad gas? If so, the computer might adapt and the shuttering may stop.

Funny you should say that. The shutter started about 20 minutes after I filled it up. Thank you for the info..
