Camry spark plug wire keeps popping off

Every half hour or so (20 - 50 miles of driving), the engine starts
misfiring. Under the hood, I can see that the plug wire assembly
(wire, boot, the connecting stick, and the puck at the end) has popped
up 3 - 4 inches. I push it down again; it seems like the wire snaps
into place on the plug, and it runs fine for a while before it pops off
again.

Any idea as to why this keeps happening?

Leaking plug. Either the plug seal itself is bad, or it is leaking
around the threads.

Definitely a dodgy plug. The centre wire is tamped into place using a fine
powder (can't remember the exact name) and the top post is screwed into the
centre wire.
In extreme cases, the powder can be omitted during manfacturing and the
centre wire can shoot out of the plug and out of the engine compartment.
Doesn't happen very often and I'm sure the the big names will deny all
knowledge.

That could ruin your day if you were sitting on the hood at the time.

Don't remember where i read it but i'm sure it's to do with the wrong plug
type.

On the OTHER hand, if he lived in the Bay Area, it just might MAKE his day.

Sure it's not cause it's way too small?

That's what you get, Ace!

Like the idiot that wrote Blow Me on the restroom wall. OK, only a ***
would write Blow Me on the MEN'S room wall, right?
