I'm working on a friend’s car! It's making a really bad ticking noise! Sound like misfiring! So we decided to change the spark plugs!

We did 1,3 and 4, but we can not take out #2! It's stuck and wont move!

Is there an easy way of pulling it out! Or drill it out and replace plugs!

I think the spark plug broke in side! Or flopped a piston and bent valves!

Any help would be appreciated!

TIA…

Is there something blocking the way? Your not giving very much info about the problem, so your not getting answers that will help. Is the boot of the wires still on the plug? Give us a little more to work with and you may get better responses.

So the rubber boot that goes down in the hole wont come off? Get some channel lock pliers and pull on that sucker. When you reinstall it, put on the grease they make for plug wires so that next time it'll be easy to get off.

take some channels locks like said above, stand on the core support and pull the shit outta it. If anything you can always replace that plug wire.
That's what I’ll try. If I can't, then drill all the rubber out.

I just thought someone knew a trick to get it out easy.

Just get some pliers and pull on the fucker. If you can't get it, get a friend that works out to do it. Granted he'll laugh at you ( I know I would) when he pulls it off, but it'll be off.

go work out, then come back it....you need to build up those gurly man muscles! i've never had this problem before in my life :confused

why don't you try removing the end on the distributor and then spin the boot around to help loosen it up?
