October 13, 2005Im telling you if its not wedged use the old kids method. Chew some bubble gum and put it on a stick. Slide it in there and stick the rock onto it and pull it out. It works every time.

October 13, 2005try the wire method, with some grease (hub bearing grease maybe) instead of gum, the gum, if it sticks to the plug hole, is not fun.
October 13, 2005Yea if gum got stuck in there too that would not be good.. grease however.. hmm.. is that stuff actually tacky enough to grab a rock?
October 13, 2005Those spark plug boots cover the hole, how did the rock get in there???
October 13, 2005We have no idea George.. lol.. if it were sitting on top it would have flew off when we pulled the coil pack so some how it much have found its way in there in the last 4 years (its an 01 with stock plugs)
October 13, 2005pay me and i will get it out.
but hanger and wrap electric tape around the hanger sticky side out.
but for the most effective tape use carpet double side tape (they sell it at homedepot) this stuff don't let go.
October 13, 2005It seems all my ideas have been suggested already. The only two that I can think of that maybe different is
1. Instead of using gum try silly putty. or something like it.
2. Try a fresh potato, cut it to shape push it down. It should be hard enough to hold but soft enough to grab.
Otherwise I really like the idea of turning the engine upside down.
October 13, 2005Maybe you could try.Putting and extension on the socket and hammering it on. Then remove and blow out the sediment. and remove the plug. The rock is the most likely thing to give first.
October 13, 2005yea but he cant get a hammer on it, its the verry back back cylinder under the dash board
October 13, 2005the coat hanger sounds the best so far.heat up and bend a flat head small screw driver!!
October 13, 2005Ok
vacume with a drinking straw and masking tape.
built and extension to the vacume and you will get your rock out
