Whole lotta labia.
Did you now that when a spark plug comes loose it can cause hundreds of dollars in damage to an engine? It's true. The car runs rough and then suddenly begins to violently shudder and then sound like a tricked out Harley. Meanwhile damage can rack up in your engine to the tune of $1000 if you're not lucky.

Me? I'm so fucking lucky I almost wet myself. $60. And ready in less than an hour. I think I might have licked my mechanic.

I have a sudden urge to become a mechanic. Strange.

Spark plugs = Really not supposed to come loose under normal circumstances.

Luckily, loosing a cylinder is usually something that's immedialtely obvious tto the driver, so you can get it looked at rith away.

Oh yeah. Because I was in stop and go traffic like "Where the hell is that motorcycle.. oh wait.. that's ME!" He says they see maybe two of these a year and it's sometimes a hard fix. WIth me they were able to fix the damaged threads and put a new plug in and get me on my way. It purrs Jim, I love my car. And i was so worried .. I spent the morning looking for cheap used cars.

Ooh, badly installed spark plug, damaged head, replace the head and head gasket for $$$ an a couple days in the shop. Maybe destroy the engine later if the builder didn't install the new nead and gasket perfectly....
