Question about 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
The first thing that i would do is check your cap and rotor for corrosion. look on the inside of the cap and see if there is corrosion on the tips where the rotor sends electricity to. check the tip of your rotor button for wear and corrosion on the tip of the rotor. If thats all good make sure wires are not bad by purchasing a spark tester at your local parts store. Its only a few bucks and you hook it on to the spark plug end of the wire and it will spark if the wire is good. If they are good then check and make sure plugs arent fouled out and make sure the gap between the electrode and the tip is correct. About .045 is usually the spec for them. then if that is all good i would consider replacing the coil because if the coil has a short in it, it could possibly cause a random misfire.
