    Most all national chain parts stores have a machine that can check it. It is located in the bottom of the distributor and is what tells the coil when to fire.

How spark plug gap Chevy caprice 1989 V8 motor. Set idle up - too slow - stalling out.

Spark plug gap will usually not cause the engine to stall out. This vehicle should be fuel injected. The idle is controlled by the computer. How did you set it up? Have you scanned the computer for trouble codes to point you in the right direction? Check for vacuum leaks.

I'm going to assume it was running before the tuneup.

Spark to the plugs ? Fuel pressure ?

I can't figure out how to install my spark plugs/wires in my 1989 chevy caprice

The plugs screw in on the bottom. You need an extension to reach that far down. Make sure they are gapped correctly. Place the plug on your extension and put it down in the engine. Sometimes it is hard to get them started, so take it slow until it catches. Tighten them down good. If you need anything else, let us know. Thanks for using FixYa.
