I presume that is a v-6 ?

Stand at the side of the motor. Look toward the front... you will note one cyclinder is slighty more toward the front then the other. that's number one cylinder .... across from it will be 2 etc... so last cyclinder on the same side as number one should be number five.

2000 Chevy Silverado 1500 with 5.8 liter gas motor reading code saying spark plug gap is incorrect on #3 and # 5 plugs but gap is correct

you may have a bad coils or coil boots in those cylinders, try switching the coils to a good cylinder and see if the codes change to the other cylinders, if they change then replace the coils, the computer see it drawing more cuurent so it thinks its the plug because its not misfiring or completly grounding out.

Truck seems to misfire when are going between 65mph and 70mph

# 5 cylinder is 3rd back on the driver side.
Check you spark plug! if the plug is ok, check your plug wire! (a good way to check your wire is to get a spray bottle, fill it with half rubbing alcohol, and half water. wait till night, spray plug wires fully, then start truck. the wire that is bad should spark! hope this works for ya!!
