Re: (Praise Audi gods, pox on Bosch) HELP!!! somthing very bad happened to a spark plug
Well it all turned out not to be a non disaster. Put some penetrating oil on for the afternoon and used a screw extractor. It came right out. Dont think I even need the oil. On closer examination both plugs were corroded 3/4 of the way around. No matter how they were unscrewed they would have parted. Question is, how can this be. Anyone else had this happen to a plug?
Now tomarrow I'll do the O2s and see what kind of other adventures I might wander into.
