Hello, Im having some problems with my car. First off I started it this morning an its shaking out of control. I loked for anything out of the normal but I cant see anything. I figured id repace the spark plugs but the manual says good till 100k. I figured id do it anyway just to see what it helps. Whats the gap for this plus? The nam is AutoliteSpark plug #896893. I need help fast. This is my daily driver and I dont have much tim to work on it. It didnt do anything out of the normal yesterday and hasnt been anything prolonged so im really unsure I this will even help.
Thanks
-Kyle

What are the codes?You put autolight plugs in?Those are pure garbage, put the gm ones back in. Aftermarket plugs cause more trouble. Scan for codes first, there are several possible fixes. Post back with what you find and will advise from there.

The plugs were 6.49 ea. And they were platinums too. Ayway I cant remember for sure what the codes where but it was p0300-p0600, when I took it to the autozone close to my house it read multiple miss fires. Still not sure of the problem.
Thanks for the reply.

I need to know what cylinder of cylinders are missfiring.I also need to know exactly what codes. This could be a fuel problem not necessarly a spark problem. You have to do some testing, because if you don't it will be a guess to what is wrong. Throwing parts at this vehicle is expensive and foolish. There are bulletins and diagnostic trouble shooting for this vehicle. If you want me to help I will help, please post back with other questions.

Do you know how to check the code numbers without using the code scrubber tool for autozone? I know on the dodge neons all you have to do it turn the key 3 times and the codes will flash on the Odometer?

GM is a different breed, you can only check codes with a code reader or a tech 2, no other way to check.
