Are ACDelco 41-942 Spark Plugs the proper plugs for the 1996 GMC JIMMY 4WD V6 , are they pre gaped and what should the proper gap be?


they should be the 41-932 plugs. AC Delco
gap should be 0.060 inch.
Check the gap before installing any plug. You never know if they were damaged in shipping before the part store got them, or if some idiot employee at the store attempted to juggle them while bored one day and damaged them by dropping them.

Need gap spacing for spark plugs. Wondering about the location of the fuel filter


Hello: There should be a white placard under the hood giving you the spark plug gap, Its called an ession label for your engine, the gap probably is .060 of an inch. The fuel filter should be behind the fuel tank or to the passenger side under the rear of the car.

Cylinder 6 misfire


could be a couple of things. 1) bad plug or spark gap. check plug for burning on electrode. check gap. if you replace 1 then replace them all. 2) check wires for any white lines. mainly around the boots, but check it all. the white lines are tell tale signs of arcing. replace if needed. 3) chech distributor cap & rotor for arcing. if you have a coil pack it could be whatever pack is controlling #6

My 96 sunfire 2.2 l auto idels rough and blows out black smoke when i rev up the motor. i also hesitates on the highwy


Black smoke is from too much fuel, or a mis-firing of the spark plug. Pull all plugs to look to see if one is blackened. If so, this is your troubled cylinder. You can test each spark plug wire with a High energy spark plug tester. If that looks OK, then do a compresion test to see if the mechanical part of the engine seems good.
