Basic Tune Up Skills part 1. Gapping and prepping spark plugs.

Our 2006 Chevy Malibu earned its way into a misfire on the #1 cylinder after 130K miles. Looking at the records it would appear I didn't tune it up when we got it at 110K miles, and I bet the original owner didn't either.... So it is time for a tune up...

I realized when talking to the younger guys at work about doing this, that they were lacking in the skills and knowledge to do their own tune ups. This video series is intended to help fix that.

Like always, Amazon links below to help you with your shopping should you be doing the same project on a similar car. Again, a 2006 Chevrolet Malibu LT 3.5L V6.

We son't be linking the Spark Plugs. Simply put, I couldn't find a good price on them on Amazon. Check www.rockauto.com for best prices on plugs. The price on wires that will be needed in part 2 however is at or lower than the house branded ones from local vendors.
