I have a 2007 Chevy box truck same engine as the 3500

Customer Question

I have a 2007 Chevy box truck same engine as the 3500 express van. I blew a spark plug and the hole to insert the new plug is to big. They tried the after market insert which also didn't work. They are saying there is no way to fix it w/o replacing the motor. Any suggestions??
