Your right about the spark plug problem. There's a process of removing them that reduces the chance of stripping the threats, but even that's risky. It in volves

Involves filling the plug hole with JB penetrating oil and giving the plugs a half turn back and forth waiting up to a half hour between turns. Scarier stuff but the plugs only last 100'000 miles at best. It might be worth it to have this done by someone else. Good luck. On till then try disconnecting the battery for about a half hour. That will reset the ECU. Good luck.
