I need the spark plug wrench for a '92 GT (2.2L) We've tried all the normal spark plug sockets, but nothing is getting down there. Apparently the car should have come with a spark plug wrench?

Thanks!

Check and make sure you don't have part of the plug wire still on the plug.

Regular plug wrenches should work.

Looks like there is some kind of rubber gasket around each plug. We kept plugging away, and are basically just tearing up that rubber piece to get it out.

The rubber piece that is left is part of your plug wires, that is what is keeping you from getting to the plug with the wrench. You need to get some long needle nose pliers or something similar to take the rest of the wire off to get to the plugs.

I guess it goes without saying, but you are going to need new plug wires too after this. Make sure you use the dielectric grease when you install the wires, that will keep this from happening next time.

Good luck.
