How To Question: Tune Up
« on: 05/12/07 02:04 PM »

Sorry for this guys , but I couldn't find it in a search.  Is there a how-to with pictures somewhere on how to perform a tune up to a 2004 avalanche vortec v8?  I wanna get e3 plugs, good wires, and a new distributor cap and put it on myself but I've never done anything like this.

Some good news for you :A: You don't have distributor cap to worry about !! And wires are all the same length, cant mess that up :A: If plugs and wires take you more than 30 mins I would be surpised :D But just make sure you start the plugs by hand. Dont want to strip the holes :B:

OK do you have a friend who has done a tuneup before, maybe you can get them to help ya.
Changing spark plugs and wires are easy, how do I put this, there is no distributor cap in a AV. Just take the old ones out and put the new ones on

   remove and replace each one at a time.  this way there is no chance of you mixing anything up.

   i have not replaced the plugs, but i have replace the wires with ThunderVolt 50's.  big difference in throttle response.
