EEK!!! I guess I should expect it. After all AC delco was first supplied with spark plugs made by Albert Champion. Then GM bought the rights to the name, incorporating it into AC Delco. Kinda scary huh?
I put a set of NGK plugs in a 2000 forerunner today as the Denso plugs that were listed, were not a twin electrode style. The engine had a tag on it specifying Only twin electrode plugs. Dont need a pesky P0300 popping up after a tune up.

NGK makes some of AC Delco's plugs.....
I near crapped when I pulled out a set of factory plugs from a 5.3 in a p/u, and they had an AC Delco number on one side of the porcelain, and an NGK number on the other side!

|LATECH||Wow, who would have thought , but then I would not have put NGK in a chevy anyhow. Kinda goes against the grain you know.|

|LATECH||What brand were they? Let me guess...CHAMPION?|

|poy41||So, it turned out that the previous owner put in cheep spark plugs and that was the reason for the miss..... I dont know why you would change the plugs on a truck that only had (under) 60,000kms on it... but nothing 300$ cant fix...|

|poy41||I actualy was just at chevy and they told me the same thing, its going in tomorrow. will keep ya updated :|

|sbchevfreak||It may not have anything to do with the stereo, with what you have mentioned. You may need to have a Crank Angle Sensor Error relearn done. IIRC, this will require a Tech II scan tool.....|

|poy41||So, the miss fire came back, Codes P0300 and once it did a P0304. this seems to happen then im in park and hold the RPMs at 2000 for 10 sec's. and ideas?|

|poy41||Too add to this, it happened again this morning. Its -36 without the wind. If i cycle thought the key, it will go off. And it hasn't came on while driving yet, only at start up.|

|poy41||So ive put a yellow top (750 amp) battery in and a cap with a voltage readout. The voltage seems to be a constant 14.5 - 14.7 and the lights are barely dimming now. But last night i drove into town and after coming out of the store and starting up the truck, a "service brake system" light came on. Restarted the truck and everything is fine. It is like -30c here with a wind chill of -42c, dont know if the cold weather would have something to do with it or not. Also rechecked for any codes, found none.|

|poy41||When changing pulleys wound you have to change belts too or would the auto tensioner do it?|
|01-01-2012 04:40 AM|
a cap is bandaid for the dimming light problem, not saing they dont work, but unles su have a total of 2,500+ watt system there is no need for one.
i see u already did the big 3 upgrades which is what i was going to suggest, if the lights still dim out or u get voltage drops when the bass hits u need a alt with more output.
what ppl fail to realise is a cap needs to be recharged after every bass hit, if the alt is not up to the job to begin with the cap does nothing
on alot of gm stuff ive done the serpintine alts have 2 diff pully sizes on cars that would dim the lights at idle we would put on the smaller pully to speed the alt up to fix the issue at idle, so that could be something u can look into on ur truck as well

|poy41||So i did the 'big 3 upgrade' and there is a difference, got a cap and a yellow top battery. Will post more then there in.|
