Mustang developed an intermittent sputtering hesitation of sorts WOT that wouldn’t go away regardless of being tuned. I’d replaced the spark plugs and gapped them properly thinking that was it, and it didn’t solve it. I tried pulling a spark plug tonight to see how it looked and it broke in the cylinder head.


The ceramic insulator came out, but the threaded portion with the ground electrode (the curved bit) is still threaded in the head. I’m already feeling shitty enough knowing that I’m responsible for it, and even more so knowing that it’s not in the budget for me to take it to the dealership for my mistake.

Your choice, give me some advice or help (I’d prefer it), or call me a fuckup or idiot. I think I’m gonna crack open my whiskey and drink to sleep over this, haven’t decided yet.
