    Well Plat. plugs are rated at 100k but if you put less than 40k miles a year its a good thing to replace them every 60k-80k miles

    Plat. Plugs are nice but you don't wan't them to rust in there and get broken.

I can't imagine what could cause the engine not to start by just pulling the transmission out.
Are you getting spark to the plugs and fuel to the injectors ?
Fuel pump is running when you turn the key switch on ?

Changed plugs and rotor in my 92 chevy 3500 454 and now it turns over but it won't start. What could the problem be? At my witts end HELP!!!!!

If the truck was running prior to changing the plugs and rotor, there's not much that could have gone wrong. You didn't mention changing the distributor cap. That usually goes hand in hand with changing the rotor. Make sure the rotor wasn't installed 180 degrees off. Double check the spark plug wires to make sure they are on the right plug. If that all checks out, then you need to pull a spark plug and check for spark and fuel at the cylinder.

I want to change the spark plugs in a 1998 Chevy S-10

If it has the 4.3L V6 they are on each side of the engine in between the headers. They are a pain to get to but not impossible. Good Luck!

1998 chevy pickup won't start. Replaced fuel pump and cap and rotor. Has spark and is getting fuel.

How many miles are on the engine? Has the timing chain ever been replaced, if it hasn't there is a possibility that the timing chain has jumped a tooth on the cam gear which throws off the ignition timing and will keep it from starting but you will still have spark and fuel.
