    Spark Plugs

    I was changing the plugs in my 98 formula, and ran into a small problem. I can't get the plug in the very back on the left side out. Any advice on how to get it out?

    Meaning you don't have enough room to get a socket on it? If this is the case there are deep-wells that have bolt pattern ends that you get a wrench on and turn. This works when you can't get a wratchet in-between the plug and opposing body of the car.

    If it's the #8 plug on Passenger side then you need to do this if you have stock manifolds. Some have moved the coil pack out of the way, but when I had stock manifold this was the only way I could get it off. Putting on LT Headers has made changing plugs a lot simpler....

    It's alot easier to get from the bottom, you just need to feel around for it a little bit.
