Thank you.
Today I'll be working with a long skinny screwdriver and compressed air.

Through researching it on here, and judging by the lack of maintenance done on this vehicle, I think the pits around the plugs are filled with Gunk, not allowing me to get the socket on.
 I tried every socket in my toolbox and couldn't figure out which one would fit.

isn't there spark plug socket made with the rubber inside to hold the plug  when pulled out ? i think its 5/8' . I could be wrong about the size .
but some other brand of plugs will fit in but the size is 13/16' just take couple sockets and try which will fit

At the risk of sounding like a complete bonehead, what size socket do I use on the spark plugs on the V6 Fiero 2.8?
