I personally use NGK (stock replacement plugs), my car has 298k. They usually last 60k when car is new and the wires were still in fair shape too..but as the engine wears internally you might need to change them more frequently maybe depending on the grade of fuel used (cheaper brands causing nocking and pinging), might need changing earlier, maybe every 40k...but you can usually tell a lot about your vehilce buy accessing one of the easiest plug to take out an have a look at it (when the engine is cold). It should look nice an light tanish-brown very little electrode wear and the insulator should be whitish-brown...this is the correct plug for your engine and type fuel/driving. there is really no need to change or try the more expensive brands.. i"ve tried different brands during the last 35 years and havent noticed any significant changes except costing twice as much. Another thing that the avg. driver doesn't seem to concern themselves with, which i have seen cause problems.. and that is carbon tracking on the plug wires and coil towers. The wires coatings break down after being exposed to the engine heat and in certain places where thay may contact or rub on the engine ..i always find one or two slight wear marks where they"re rubbing on places on the engine..that is why it is important to uses the plastic wire clip seperators when routing them. i hope you find this information useful.

Back in the day, it was every 30k. These days with these high tech platinum type plugs, and iridium type plugs, you can stretch it 100k. I never did.

If you haven't done it since 2000 (new), i suggest you have it done regardless of miles.

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.

Which is spark plug #5 on a Chevrolet 2000 Silverado 1500?


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.
