Oja may have said something they shouldn't have...
rubber grommet stuck on spark plug

I noticed when I installed new spark plug wires. The rubber boot thing on the end of the O.E.M. spark plug wire connector, came off around the installed spark plug my new boot isnt fitting all the way correctly connected too plug its running fine but i think it might just be arcing to the plug. And i have tried getting something down there to grab it and a spark plug socket wont fit b/c of the rubber grommet in the way err pain in my butt. WHAT SHOULD I DO

^^^^ also, make sure not to let any of the rubber to fall in without the spark plug still in.

question, what wires were they? my brother had my car before me and he always took the cheap route. he had some autozone spark plug wires and every one of them fell apart when i went to change them and the spark plugs. i replaced them with NGK's and will never buy anything of lesser quality.


when that happened to me, i used needle nose plyers to grab the parts that fell apart and/or stuck to the spark plug. good luck

I had my actual spark plug break off inside the tube. I've also had what you're talking about happen and I ended up using a flathead screwdriver and some long ass forceps to pull it out. It took forever but it eventually came out. It's just one of those pain in the ass things. The forceps are the only thing i've used though.

i can't really remember. they were gray in color and had the word 'smart' in the name i believe. just try not to get those anymore if that's what you have. the NGK's can be purchased for like 30 bucks and they're WELL worth it.

i bought mine from this guy because most places around wanted like 40-50. http://www.ecrater.com/product.php?pid=2147235 he had them shipped pretty quick, too.
