Sad rounded spark plugs
I have a 1993 dodge ram 150 and i am re4placing the spark plugs. All were Very hard to remove. and on the last one it is so tight I rounded the "nut" So every time i try to wrench on it i slipped off. Is there any way to remove the plug without further damage? Also all the plastic has been busted off. I'm short off getting a chisle and trying that but i thought to see if anyone could help.

RE: rounded spark plugs
See if local Autozone has a turbo socket that will remove rounded bolts. It is a reverse fluted twist inside the socket. The more you pull to loosen, the tighter it grabs. Not exactly sure of the name Autozone will call it.

Being way2old is why I need help from younger minds.

I will give that a shot thank you. I had a idea of getting one o those multi-purpose sockets I think they are called Gator something. But then I fear that the socket itself will be to big fer the hole. Thank you so much I will let you know how it turns out.
