    What do Ya'll use to get stuck spark plugs out? I've tried WD40, Burlite, and some other stuff we had laying around and nothing worked. The PO put split sh!t plugs in there and I've got a bad miss so I'm guessing that's my problem. Any idea's are appreciated.

    You've tried removing them when the engine is still hot or warm? The expansion/contraction difference in the metals should make it a bit easier shortly after driving the vehicle.

    I've never heard of an honest to goodness stuck plug, there really should be no reason for them to be stuck that tight. Hope they didn't loc tite them in there or jb weld a stripped plug hole!

    ZEP spray works. Have you tried tightening it and then loosening it? Once in a while this works. I'd give others' suggestion of trying it after you've driven it as well. Things like this is what makes me smile when I use anti-seise on mine. haha. Sorry to laugh at your misfortune.
