Hello, I am new, I have a Ford Explorer 1992 stock, with a stuck spark plug, passenger side by the firewall. I'm afraid I'm going to break something if I force it, it's in there too tight. Any helpful hints to remove it please?

...this usually happens when someone puts the plugs in and does not apply anti-seize for spark plugs...you could spray some deep creep or pb blaster on it to soak...
...if you search there is a current thread about "broke sparkplug" you might want to read while your soaking your plug...good luck...:D

Hi tbars, thank you for your quick and informative reply, I appreciate it, could you please link me to this broke sparkplug thread you mention? I tried searching the forum for it by title but came up with nothing, TIA.
