I would go ahead and retap with head on yes it can be done, use a shop vac if you can, or crank motor over with plug out before installing new one so what shavings are in the cylinder will blow out, crank a few times.

How to remove sprk pug on 2007 nitro


You don't say much about the problem, but here's a trick used for hard to get plugs.

Use a old plug wire plug boot to pull the plug out when it's loose and to re-install the plug. Many times you can get a plug loose but it's not easy to turn the tool, that's where the old wire boot comes in handy. push it on to the plug you can turn it more easy.

Oil in spark park plugs


You have leaking spark plug grommet/seals under the valve cover, and most likely being a 91, also have leaking cam tower o-rings. The first is just a matter of replacing the valve cover gasket set. The second requires removal of the cam tower/rocker arm shaft assy. to access the o-ring seals between them and the head. If you are not an experience mechanic, I do not recommend doing this yourself. It is easy to damage parts and bend valves if you don't seat it properly.

Inspection

Inspect for the correct routing of the spark plug wires. Improper routing may cause cross-firing. Inspect each wire for any signs of cranks or splits in the wire. Inspect each plug wire boot for tearing, piercing, arcing, carbon tracking or a corroded terminal.
If there is any corrosion, carbon tracking or arcing indicated on a plug wire boot or terminal, both the plug wire and component it was connected to should be replaced.

Hello sawjr.

From what you describe it appears you may have engine misfire.
Most common is a problem with an ignition coil that is mounted directly over the spark plug.
You also may be due for spark plug replacement.
Chances are your check engine light is on although sometimes it takes a while for it to come on.
Best thing to do is to have your system scanned for which cylinder is the one that is misfiring and replace the coil. Also may be a good idea to replace the spark plugs at the same time.
Spark plugs should be replaced on these engines by an experienced technician as they can break off on removal if procedure isn't done correctly.
I hope this leads you towards a proper repair.
Thank you for using FixYa.

There is a misfire in my engine, changed plugs & wires. now it reads that the fuel leveling sensor is bad, will this help?


If there is a misfire, the cylinder that it is misfiring in will be recorded as a code in the computer.

Have the car scanned to determine which cylinder is bad. Then, replace the coil pack going to that cylinder.
