1996 Chevrolet Impala SS Question: Spark plug replacement

 

Question

I recently had extensive repairs, pump, distributor, etc.
I find that my car seems to want to stall and has lost alot of power, do you think I need a tune up/spark plug replacement. I have 55,000 miles. I noticed that spark plug replacement maintenance showed at 60,000 miles?
Thank you.

    CHANGING YOUR PLUGS FOR MILAGE REASONS IS ALWAYS GOOD, ALTHOUGH I DONT THINK IT WILL FIX YOUR SYMPTOMS. IF IT IS MISFIRING, PLUGS AND WIRES CAN CAUSE THAT, BUT NOT THE STALLING. REC. YOU HAVE THE PROBLEM PROPERLY DIAGNOSED BEFORE YOU THROW PARTS AT IT AND CROSS YOUR FINGERS, HOPE THIS WAS HELPFUL
