Question about 1995 Chevrolet Suburban
My ******* husband left me but not before he ripped the spark plug wires out of my suburban. I absolutely need to get this fixed but can't afford to have it done professionally. Advice on doing it myself would be greatly appreciated. I'm not totally ignorant about cars so I think with some instruction I can handle this.
It's gotta be 5.7 V-8 . As u stand in front of the suburban facing the front bumper, there are 4 spark plugs on each side of the engine. The front (of the engine) plug on the drivers side, is plug #1, the front plug on the pass. side is #2, then back to driver side, next plug back is #3, back to Pass side, next plug is #4 etc. to #8. The distributor cap (spark plug wires go from dist. cap (9 wires on top) to each spark plug, Extra wire goes to coil, which sends spark to all wires). The wires fire in the following order: 1, 8, 4, 3, 6, 5. 7, 2. You will have to find where the #1 spark plug goes in the distributor cap, some (hopefully yours ) have a #1 on the top next too where the wire plugs in to the cap. If u find this u r good to go! Put #1 wire in, using a pushing/twisting motion, the wires go in in a clockwise order from #1 as u look down on the distributor. Wires to spark plugs go on w/ same push/twist. You should hear/feel a slight click or snap (not always though!) if inserted all the way. Let me know if this is enough info, if not I'll try to give u more. If u can't find where #1 goes on the dist. cap, stand on the driver side of engine, I believe #1 is at approx. 8 oclock position on the dist cap. Good luck!
