Check your fuel filter....located under driver's side seat, inside frame rail. Be careful when removing; that location gets lots of roadcrud and the fittings will easily rust. If you crack the fuel line.... Second place to look is fuel pump; top of the gas tank - gotta pull the bed for access. Ick. The fuel pressure at the engine should be > 50psi, although you can get by above 40-ish psi, but the idle will be noticably rougher the farther below 50psi you get. Luck!

A Chevrolet Silverado that has cruise control problems might be having a problem with the part of the engine that controls speed and fuel intake. One culprit for this problem is the Speed Control Sensor that is located in the transmission. This part can be easily changed because it is more or less a probe that fits into the rear of the transmission.
