Question type: Maintenance & Repair

noticed my check engine light turning on and intermediately flashing, so I checked my
spark plugs. Only two of the spark plug wires were plugged in and they will not go in at all.

How old are the wires? Are they dried up and nasty? If so get some new one's and get the special spark plug grease. Push down gently but firmly when installing them.

Hell, a new set of plugs while you're there.
