The right sized socket extension is the key...try the smallest
one inch ext and socket...if you use to many universals, you can accidently twist the socket and break off the plug...Be sure you are using anti-seize on the new plugs also.

    just so you know,I have changed plenty of number 8 plugs in a 5.3,remember,you have not,you cant pick and choose.

    I'm sorry if I offened you. I was hoping for some specific steps on what to do, and maybe what not to do. The space is so small I thought maybe I had to remove some engine parts first. You are right that I have never done it before. My concern is that I may struggle and eventually get the old plug out but may not be able to get the new one back in. I can only get one hand in there at a time and after struggling for a bit and cutting up my hand on nearby engin parts I gave up, thinking there must be some special trick that someone could share with me. Also, I have seen some people recommending using an "anti-freeze" compound on the new plug threads . I have never used this before on all the other vehicles I have changed plugs on. I never even heard of it before. Is this something that you use when changing the plugs on your Tahoe? Is this something you feel is necessary. Thank you for your help.

    Thank you!

  • James Clubb Apr 08, 2015

    Thank you for the video link you posted for me. After watching your video I was able to change the spark plug. Unbolting the oil dip stick from the engin block was the key info I needed to make changing the plug possible. Thanks again for your help.

How do I replace my ignition coil on my 97 tahoe 5.7 v8


First off I must say, Gene Farley you are CRAZY!! 97 Tahoe does NOT have individual coils. It has a single coil mounted to the top of the intake on the rear passenger side of the engine. I've been a mechanic for over 12 years and mostly specialize in Chevy/GMC trucks and SUVs. I do agree with next answer down though that you should check for fire coming out of the plug wire at the spark plug end. If it's getting fire and fuel pressure is good then I recommend the coolant temp sensor located right beside the water neck on the front of the engine. GM vehicles are known for this problem.

2007 Chevy Tahoe rear door won't open


If the contacts that go to the door lock are corroded the switch will not work. Spray WD-40 from inside the vehicle into the space between truck and the door on the passenger side. A few squirts near the high to middle of the side of door should give enough conductivity to energize the lock.

The #1 spark plug wire should go on the post of the distibutor pointing towards the #1 cylinder from the center of the cap, and then #2 is next in a clockwise motion, with 3, 4, etc. Hope this helps! chevy 2.8, good-day !

Chevy k1500 5.7 v8 wont start


Sounds like your timing is off when you placed the distributor back in or your spark plug wires are crossed. Start with the simple and check the spark plug wire firing order. 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2 Cylinder numbers drivers side 1-3-5-7 radiator to firewall. Cylinder numbers passenger side 2-4-6-8 radiator to firewall. Distributor cap #1 is at 5 O'clock and rotates clock wise. Once that is establish to be good then make sure the cylinder 1 is at TDC with the distributor rotor at the #1 position. Good luck and hope it's a crossed firing order.

How do i change the headlight bulbs in my 2007 chevy tahoe


Pop the hood and locate the rubber piece that is behind the headlight. Remove the plastic screw that holds it in place and you can easily just bend down the rubber piece to gain access to the bulbs. The driver side is a little tighter to get into because it sits next to the windshield washer fluid container.The passenger is a lot easier but you do have to remove the air box which is very easy.
