Question about 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
01 chevy silverado, 5.3. I want to test the ignition coils? How do I read the prongs on my multitool reader in regards to ohms, etc?
The ignition coil has two separate windings. They are not connected. Start by testing from one terminal to connection to another. If this works then the two others should be the other circuit. The primary coil has a low resistance, up to 10 ohms. The secondary winding has a higher resistanse, up to 100 ohms or so. If you measure Mohms then the coil jhas a break.

Disconnect all wires from the coil. Use a DVOM (Digital Volt Ohm Meter) to test the coil. Connect one meter lead (either one) to one of the small primary terminals on the coil and the other meter lead to the other primary terminal. Set the meter's function switch to OHMS, R x 1. You should read between 2 -3 ohms. Any higher or lower, the coil is probably bad.
Now, you may can remove the spark plug wires from the plugs and insert another set of plugs in the wires. Make sure the plugs are grounded on the heads. Turn the switch on and turn it back off. When you turn the switch back off, you should see a single spark at the plugs.
