Replacing distributer suburban 1500 m 1997


HOPE YOU DIDN\'T TAKE OUT THE OLD ONE YET !!!!!!!!!! YOU MIGHT WANT READ UP ON THIS BEFORE YOU DO. BUT THERE ARE PROCEDURES, DISTRIBUTOR MUST BE MARKED, @ BASE/ENGINE BLOCK, USE PAINT, ROTOR MUST BE FACING #1 SPARK PLUG, #1 PISTON NEEDS TO BE SET @ TOP-DEAD-CENTER, ON THE COMPRESSION STROKE, NOT EXHAUST STROKE, IF YOU REMOVE THE VALVE COVER DRIVERSIDE IF V8, YOU CAN SEE #1 ROCKER ARMS. WHEN ROTATING THE ENGINE, MANUALLY W/WRENCH, BFW, BIG-FU-KIN-WRENCH, BOTH ROCKER ARMS WILL BE EVEN & LOOSE, IF YOU REMOVE #1 SPARK PLUG, THE TOP OF THE PISTON WILL BE @ TOP OF ITS STROKE, ALSO, TIMING MARKS WILL BE INLINE @ CRANKSHAFT DAMPER. @ 0, TOP DEAD CENTER. WHEN THIS OCCURS, YOUR @ TOP DEAD CENTER . DO YOU UNDERSTAND ???????? BY REMOVING ALL SPARK PLUGS IT WILL BE EASYIER TO TURN THE CRANK. ONCE YOU ACHIEVE & SATISFY ALL THE ABOVE PROCEDURES YOU CAN SET IN YOUR DISTRIBUTOR, ROTOR FACING #1 SPARK PLUG TERMINAL, THAT YOU ALSO MARKED, INSERT THE NEW DISTRIBUTOR EXACTLY LIKE YOU TOOK IT OUT, REPEAT, EXACTLY..........................GOOD LUCK!!!

Can't reach #8 plug on 5.3 liter suburban


This is a engineered problem that noone wants to know about. It happens on a variety of cars and some makes are so aware of it that the plugs to the fire wall are very costly so they never need replacing while the ones to the front are cheapies. Unknown to most motorists when a tune up is done they are charged for all plugs but in fact only 1/2 are replaced. Back to you problem it may be necessary to support the engine tranny assembly whilre you remove the engine/tranny mount to lower the engine enough to get to the plug. To fix the problem put the expensive plug in this spot.

What is a good spark plug to use for a tune up


HI. The bosh platinum brand will be the better solution.

Bosch Platinum+2 offers great firing technology, which combines the advantages of 2 nickel-yttrium ground electrodes, pure platinum center electrode and surface air gap technology for optimum engine performance, smoother acceleration and better gas mileage. The key here is "better gas mileage"

I run these plugs myself, and they are very nice replacement plugs

What kind of ac spark plugs should i use?


Use AC Spark plugs, but you'll get a selection of them at the auto parts store, ranging from standard AC Spark Plugs to the Platinum Tipped Spark Plugs.

Try the Platinum tipped ones to get up to 100,000 mi. per plug.

Chevy suburban 5.3 2006 random missfire on all cylinders


Have you used all the gas that was previously in the tank, It sounds like you have a slight water in the gas. If you haven't used any gas since it started this, then I would drain it out and re-fill it. Also what type of plugs are you running, this will have an impact on how the engine performs. Some people use the most expensive platinum plug and the engine will only perform with the mid platinum or the OEM. I have seen a lot of cars like this and once the plugs are changed to a OEM or a little better plug, the problems go away. Good luck.

When idoling my 1999 suburban not much power.


Hello there

Sounds like it needs a tune up. You need to get the Fuel filter, oil filter, air filter, spark plugs and oil changed.

The fault you've described points to either electrical problem, spark plugs or fuel problems, fuel filter.


Hope this helps, please don't forget to rate me.
