    The platinum and iridium plugs,leave the spark gap alone!You will break the tips off easily.The early 5.3s,blown out intake gaskets will cause a misfire.While running,spray brake clean near the intake gasket area noticing for a change.If a change,intake gaskets are bad

Saw them lights on Amazon. not cheep. but I started to look for parts for my truck. found and considering the body and dash and maybe some electronic screens for tacks and another on video Cameras/ recorder.

    My 04 has ran like crap since I bought it just figured it was normal. I drive about 80k or better per year never tune just change oil and tires as needed. It's just a tool. Buying a 2020 next month will try to take a little better care of it.

  • On3Vic

    Try changing your knock sensors! I had the exact same issue as you and it really pissed me off lol ended up just being knock sensors though. Change both knock sensors and the harness that goes to them and hopefully your issue gets fixed.

    Your plug gap should be .60 and that engine needs the iridium plugs. My 01’ 6.0l 2500hd I run NGK iridium plugs and they run perfect. I tried all kinds of plugs but NGK iridium are the best! Also clean your throttle body and run some octane booster or injector clean on a new tank of fuel.

  • Karl Thomas

    Do you have any problems with the gap for your spark plugs. What I always do and suggest to people is if you’re going to do your own work on your own vehicle or anybody else’s for that matter by one of the repair manuals for your truck vehicle at like O’Reillys I don’t know which company does it there’s two different ones but that tells you everything you need to know otherwise call dealership give me your Vin number and I’ll have all the information you need. The one thing about forums is nobody’s necessarily right it’s all just opinion so you’re not necessarily getting the right information.

    And the lean condition may have something to do with the o2 sensors if the code for the first one is po420 I would say the o2 sensor and best to replace in pairs

  • Chase Matthews

    I would put my money on your po300 random cylinder misfire would be your intake gaskets and while your at it do the knock sensors and silicone the rubber boots to the knock sensors and do your vally cover gasket

  • Isaiah Osborne

    I was always told not to gap iridium plugs, I never did in my 5.3 and never had an issue. When mine was misfiring and hesitating really bad and throwing codes it ended up being that I messed up one of the spark plug wires.

    Hey I'm going through the same problems with my 06 1500 WT you need to check the wiring to the heated 02 sensors because they tell the trucks computer the air to fuel ratio and the wiring could be destroyed. Since mine is a manual it got pinched on top in the transmission and body.if it had a transmission replaced then the wire loom is probably pinched

    I’ve got a 2005 Silverado with its original sparks, they’ve got about 230,000 miles on them. I’ve looked in my manual and the spark plug gaping should be 0.040 for V8 engines except for the 8100 which would be 0.060 along with the V6 engines. Not sure if this applies to Chevy’s of this era but on some vehicles if of you disconnect the battery, the throttle would have to relearn the idle.

    I would have closed the gap some becuase that truck is rich and expanding the gap you weaken the fire unless you have a strong enough ignition to jump the gap which you don’t more then likely so you made it richer by widening the gap

    Check your evap canister.

    The longer you leave that clear coat sanded and un polished the harder it’s gonna be to get those sand marks out
