Probably talking about the plug cover gasket or valve cover gasket, Steve.
That may have blown out with the combustion gas entering the plug chamber.

Thanks for all the reply's.

It appears that they are gonna get a truck/trailer and tow it back to

I'll take a look at it when it get here.

The dealership it was at stated that the coil and the plugwire were toast
and the plug threads were stripped.

They ALSO stated that the headgasket was damaged in the incident??? This
seems odd to me. Any ideas on how that could be caused by a stripped plug?

Take care,
