Rough idle, hard shifting

My low mileage (10k miles) has been acting up a bit lately. Idle can be a bit rough/shaky at times. Thinking it may just need a tune up. Last year I replaced ALL the fluids, put a new heater core in (leaking), and replaced ALL the filters. She is still ideling a bit rough. Thought it may have been some stale fuel but just put fresh in drove an hour and still doing it. Any suggestions? If I were to do a tuneup what would be a complete job for this truck? Should the fuel injection system be cleaned? Truck also will shift a bit hard when romping on it, not sure if that is normal for these trucks or not. I am not mechanical so I have a good shop to do the work.

These trucks do shift pretty firmly. Hard to say about the rough idle. Several things could cause a rough idle. New plugs,wires,cap and rotor would not hurt anything.

Ok thanks. I am going to do that and replace all the vacuum hoses also. I saw that sport machines sells a kit for the plugs/wires/cap made by Ice ignition....are those known to work well on these trucks or does it even matter. If not what brand acdelco?

I have not used the wires that sportsmachine sells but they are most likely good. I have used the vacuum hose kit from them and it was great. Replacing them is a good idea.

Don't forget to replace fuel filter. How long have you owned it? Do you idle it more than you actually drive it?
