How to Replace the Spark Plugs on a Silverado/Sierra
Need help on how to change the spark plugs on a 2001 chevy truck with the 5.3L V8. I tried to pull the rubber boot out but it will not come out. Is there a special tool that is needed in order to get them out? Also is the metal cilindar thing that the boot hangs out of apart of it or is it just a covering where the plug and boot goes into.

needle nose pliers. The hole metal boot comes off. Dont just grab the wire put them right on the metal boot and pull them off. I just changed my plugs on my 03 last week. Get a little piece of hose to put on the plug to get it started2003 Silverado Z71 Ext Cab 100K

same as texasrebel
I talked to a supossed mechanic and he said to pull out the spark plug wires first. Also that after years of driving heat the wires can melt to the plug and get stuck. Not sure what to do. Liv2hunt if you just did it all go with 2 needle nose pliers and pull and twist and see what happens.

To make this easier next time, take some conductive grease and put it on the ends of the spark plugs(where you plug the wires onto).
