SOURCE: Do I need special tools to replace spake plugs on

Super easy to do but I wouldn't replace the wires unless you know one is malfunctioning (very rare and the stock wires are fine 100k+). For the plugs I'd recommend not going with the bosch plugs, if you really want platinum pick up a set of the ngk or the factory delcos (ngk makes the oem plugs). Here are some part #'s, you can just call a napa with the stock # and they should have them, I'm guessing you have a 00+ tahoe with a 4.8/5.3? They all work the same for any of the lsx truck motors.
Spark Plug_________Part No.____Stock No.___Plug Gap 
Laser Platinum______PTR5D-10___3784______.040 
OE Laser Iridium_____ITR5F13____6044______.040 
Iridium IX __________TR5IX______7397______.040

Plugs are really easy to do, just get a few angles and a few length extensions for a 3/8" ratchet and it will be done in no time. Take your time and be careful not to drop the plugs make sure you screw the plugs in by hand first, and after a couple of turns you can put the socket/wrench on there.

Good luck and hope this helps.

You bike might of came with the tools under the seat . Thats all you should need . You might need to remove the fairings and/or gas tank . If you have under 100,000 miles . You shouldnt need new plugs . It dont hurt to check .

SOURCE: any special tools need to replace out put transistors?

Adcom systems in general are compact and not the easiest to work on. There are no specialized tools required. Just be careful as there can be wires that are short that can be damaged. Make sure that the driver circuits are OK prior to jsut replacing the outputs. If you don't you may just blow the replacement parts as well.

Check for spark. My guess would be the ignition module going out, but could also be the crank sensor. The module sits under the coils. Check all coils for spark. If any coil doesn't spark, you can try replacing just that coil, but the problem may still be the module underneath. If you have a meter, run a resistance check on each coil from the terminals to ground. If the same coil that doesn't fire aslo has a different resistance, replace that coil.
If you have a meter, check the AC voltage on each of the crank sensor wires shown as compared to ground or battery positive. If the AC voltages are different on the three wires, suspect the sensor is bad, but also check the tone ring on the pulley (Fig 2 below) for any damage.
Please see my tip at for how to check for spark. These are genericinstructions.
The 3.3L engine is the only one with the C 3 I system. REMOVAL and INSTALLATION C3I Module See Figure 1
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Unplug the 14-way connector at the ignition module.

Fig. Fig. 1: Distributorless C 3 I coils and module system - 3.3L engine
  1. Tag and disconnect the spark plug wires at the coil assembly.
  2. Remove the nuts and washers securing the C 3 I module assembly to the bracket.
  3. Remove the 6 bolts attaching the coil assemblies to the ignition module.

To install:
  1. Install the coil assemblies to the ignition module and install the 6 attaching bolts.
  2. Install the nuts and washers attaching the assembly to the bracket.
  3. Connect the spark plug wires.
  4. Engage the 14-way connector to the module.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable, then reset the clock, radio and any other accessories.

Ignition Coil(s)
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Tag and disconnect the spark plug wires.
  3. Remove ignition coil attaching bolts, then the ignition coil from the module.

To install:
  1. Install the coil(s) and attaching bolts.
  2. Connect the spark plug wires.
  3. Connect the negative battery cable, then reset the clock, radio and any other accessories.

Dual Crankshaft Sensor
See Figures 2, 3 and 4
  1. Disconnect battery negative cable.
  2. Remove serpentine belt from crankshaft pulley.
  3. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  4. Remove right front tire and wheel assembly, then the inner access cover.
  5. Remove crankshaft harmonic balancer retaining bolt and crankshaft harmonic balancer.

Fig. Fig. 2: Harmonic balancer with interrupter rings on C 3 I system
  1. Unplug the electrical connector from the sensor and remove the crankshaft sensor from the vehicle.

To install:
  1. Loosely install the crankshaft sensor on the pedestal.

Fig. Fig. 3: Dual crankshaft sensor - C 3 I system
  1. Position the sensor with the pedestal attached on special tool J-37089.
  2. Position the tool on the crankshaft.
  3. Install the bolts to hold the pedestal to the block face. Tighten to 14-28 ft. lbs. (20-40 Nm).
  4. Tighten the pedestal pinch bolt to 30-35 inch lbs. (3-4 Nm).
  5. Remove special tool J-37089.
  6. Place special tool J-37089 on the harmonic balancer and turn. If any vane of the harmonic balancer touches the tool, replace the balancer assembly.

A clearance of 0.025 inch is required on either side of the interrupter ring. Be certain to obtain the correct clearance. Failure to do so will damage the sensor. A misadjusted sensor of bent interrupter ring could cause rubbing of the sensor, resulting in potential driveability problems, such as rough idle, poor performance, or a no start condition.
  1. Install the balancer on the crankshaft and install the crankshaft balancer bolt. Tighten to 200-239 ft. lbs. (270-325 Nm).
  2. Install the inner fender shield.
  3. Install the tire and wheel assembly. Tighten to 100 ft. lbs. (140 Nm).
  4. Lower the vehicle.
  5. Install the serpentine belt.
  6. Connect the negative battery cable, then reset the clock, radio and any other accessories.

Turns over , gas to carb but no spark? replaced coil. 1982 Ford 2.3 liter engine

1980's Fords were notorious for the "Thick Film Ignition" (TFI) modules going bad. They were so bad in fact, that there was a class-action law suit filed against Ford for this issue. If you are sure that your distributor cap, rotor and wires are in good condition, then I would try replacing the TFI module. It is screwed to the side of the distributor. A special socket tool can be purchaced at your local parts supplier for this purpose. The screws go way inside the body of the TFI module and standard sockets will not fit into the hole far enough to get onto the head of the screw. It is not real expensive. You are looking at maybe less than $80 for the TFI module and the tool to install it with.

Where is the ignition control system located on a 1992 ford ranger?

the ignition module should be bolted to the side of the distributor. It takes a 5.5 millimeter socket or you can get a special tool at any good parts store. they should be able to check the module for you once you get it off.

I have replaced fuel pump and now have fuel getting to engine now i have no spark, engine will not start

The most common cause of no spark on 86 through 90 ranger V-6 is a bad ignition module. They aren't too hard to replace, but you need a special tool. The module is located on the distributor stem at the back of the engine. Its held on by two small screws that need to be taken off with a special tool. It can be bought at Advanced Auto for about $5, just called "Ford ignition module tool". If you have small enough hands you can probably even get the module replaced without taking the distributor out.

Jeep won't start

Check voltage at coil. Check coil output (spark should be healthy even at 1/4" away from ground). If OK, then change module The only testing on module is with a special tool. Therefore if contacts are clean, that's all you can do with it!
