2000 chevy silverado

I have a 2000 chevy Silverado 4x4 5 speed clutch with a 6 cylinder. We replaced the spark plugs, spark plugs cables the rotor and distributed cap. We replaced them about 3 weeks ago. I started feeling problems like the truck jumping and acting weird when you hold a steady rpm. The engine light came on Tuesday. The 22nd I took it up to auto parts and they did a scan. It said it was random misfire and it was time for a tune up. I haven't checked everything yet just looking if this has happened to anyone else and what's the cheapest way to fix it before I take apart my truck again.

Welcome to the forums.

Make sure the wires are firmly seated on the spark plugs as well as in the distributor cap.

You may have purchased a defective cap and rotor. I always kept the old set as an emergency replacement. If all the wires appeared to be seated properly..... try switching back to your old cap and rotor.
