8.1 lope

2008 W 22 chassis 8.1 with 40000 miles. Currently on a trip and late today when I pulled to a stop sign I noticed a very subtle engine lope at idle. Gave it a little gas and it idled smooth.
Any ideas?

It did it one time for a brief moment and thatís it? Or it is consistently happening?

Have you ever cleaned the MAF and have you ever replaced the fuel filter?

John
It did it twice at the end of the day just before I stopped for the night. Taking off this am, I’ll let you know if I get it consistently.
Thanks

No, I’ve never cleaned the MAF or the fuel filter. Cleaning/replacing the MAF is easy enough. Any ideas where the fuel filter is located (2008 HR Admiral)?

Wondering if you got a bad tank of fuel. Be interesting if it goes away when you refill. Have had other cars (not the coach) do this and fresh fuel corrected it.

Your fuel filter is most likely inside the frame, drivers side, just ahead of the drive axel.

Do you have a ScanGauge? If so, you can watch the fuel numbers and also the fuel air ratio.

Happy Glamping.

Fuel filter is located where Unplanned mentioned.


How many miles are on it?

Have the plugs and wires ever been changed?

Fixed!
This morning it started running rough and progressively got worse. Would barely move and no throttle response. Engine light cam on. Was at a Loves truck stop and there shop was no help what so ever. Called the local Chevrolet dealer, “we don’t work on Motorhome’s”.
I was dead on the side of the road, what a helpless feeling.
I then remembered John Brazil responded to this post and I gave him a call. Suggested I get a code scanner (I have one at home) went to car quest and bought one (now I have two) scan saint P 0115 and P 0113 oxygen sensors. I called John back and he said it was highly unlikely both o2 sensors when the bad at the same time. He said look at the MAF and if connection and wiring looked good, go get a new one. Off to car quest. Came back and removed the tunnel to have a look see and there it was, the hose clamp that holds the intake tube on the throttle body was loose and the tube was disconnected from the throttle body. Re connected and after three hours of running around, we’re back on the road.
Thanks everyone for your input and especially John Brazil - he is a wealth of knowledge and a life saver. Thanks again John!

Just want to make sure I understand, the intake tube had pulled off the throttle body due to a loose clamp? Was the MAF okay and the end near the filter?

Glad you got it fixed. Brazels/Ultra RV has gotten me out of more than one jam

You should always be able to change a clogged fuel filter, and carrying a spare will save having to find one.
On the WCC chassis, it is located inside the driver side frame rail above the rear axle. UNLESS a PO has already installed the adapter, you will need to purchase and installed one. The adapter is NECESSARY because nobody makes the 3-port filter they used as OE any longer. The adapter allows you to use the standard 2- port filter that is readily available at any auto parts store.
For more info including pictures, see HERE: New Workhorse Fuel Filter Adapter
