Today, I bought Spark Plug wrench from Pepboy (one that looks like "T"), and tried to remove Stock Sparks from my 2001 Tiburon. But nomatter how hard I tried, the Spark didn't move... even 1mm. I don't think that it's my "strength" problem. I think those "T" wrench sux... right? <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

What tool do you use to remove those? Do you use one that has long handle (so that you can turn easily?). I think I should return this sucky wrench.

Yup, I have those... but no extension. I was thinking about purchasing extension, but instead got wrench :(

Well, gonna exchange it tomorrow.

let the engine cool buddy. you probably learned this in your elementary science class but METAL EXPANDS WHEN HOT and CONTRACTS WHEN COLD.
this should explaing why yours didn't move

Well, I let the engine cool down for few (like 3) hours after my trip to Pepboy... Maybe that was the problem because engine was still somewhat hot. I'll check it right now to see if it moves.
