Yes but that won't buy you much time. When the remaining two plugs burn out your car will run really badly. Try and find a mechanic that can get the plugs out without damaging the engine. You may end up having to bite the bullet and force them out and then heli-coil the heads. This is why I always use anti-seize on plug threads.
