Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So I have a 98 civic 5spd I started it last night & the
whole spark plug popped out??? What tf does that

3 Answers


I would check spark plug hole in the head. generally when the spark plug pops out it either ripped out the threads in the head or under vibration it backed itself off and finally popped out. If the threads are gone in the head it will require a spark plug thread repair kit to fix approx $30 fix.
