How to Change Spark Plugs in a 2005 Chevy Colorado
With 75,000 miles, I decided to change the spark plugs for my in-line 5-cylinder, 2005 Chevy Colorado truck. It was not as difficult as I anticipated. I could not find many good pictures or instructions on the Internet. So, I decided to make a video and upload it to YouTube and some of the do-it-yourself websites. The new plugs gave me quite noticeable pep and acceleration from a stop a much more responsive gas pedal. Im not sure if the plugs will improve fuel mileage. But, Id like to think they will. The job took me about 2 hours. Most of that was applying a good cleaning to the engine parts. Video is approximately 9mins 25 secs long.
