Well, I can tell you what NOT to do: Was changing plugs in daughter's Ford Probe, and one shell had a bit of rust -when I slid a wrench on it, the shell broke between the hex head and the threads. I was able to break away the ceramic with a screwdriver blade and a hammer. (Don't know how much broken ceramic I got into the cylinder, - Did try to vacuum it out with a small hose on a shop vac.) Then I tried a tapered easy-out. Problem was, that every time I tried to turn out the plug remains, it would bind tighter. Finally got a straight easy-out, and that gripped without causing the plug shell to bind. By that time I had removed the radiator, to get enough clearance to get at the plug. The shell of that plug was so soft, it would expand under pressure. Vacuumed the inside of the cylinder as best I could before putting in the new plug, and yes, I used anti-sieze!

The tires were blocked, the rear end raised on jacks, the lugs loosened and the tire loosened from the hub. Then, as the big lugged circle of rubber slipped off the last wheel stud it became apparent that there was more there than just an empty tire. Four hundred pounds of rim, tire, and fluid dropped to the ground like a sack of wet cement. Fortunately the installer jumped out of the wa ... [Read Article]
