Asked by Apr 20, 2015 at 03:57 PM about the 1997 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Cheyenne Standard Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I bought a 1997 Cheyenne 305. Ran for two days had a little hesitation when speeding up at low speeds. Would not start next day. Replaced 4 plugs it started and sounded good. Replaced the other 4 would not start all old plugs looked real bad. Any ideas what the problem might be?

Inspect distributor components, cap has aluminum contacts that corrode over time.

Try buying next time AC plugs. Copper. They come from the factory. --I had similar problem with bosh and another type plugs until I ran into someone that works at the plant.


Thank You but I used AC Delco plugs.
