I am working on my old 91 Camry LE. It has been a great car (it has
188 k miles) and I have worked on most of its problems during the
years. I am working on diagnosing what appears to be an ignition
system problem and I ran into a problem that has bugged me for years.
The spark plugs attach to the distributor with a plastic cap. I the
past I have actually broken these caps in my effort to get the plug
off the distributor. Last year, I replaced the plugs with a new set
of OEM plugs. Therefore, I am back to trying to get these plugs off
the distributor again. Is there a trick that will get them off
without destroying the plastic caps??

Thanks, Al Kondo

Al,

Don't the spark plugs attach to ignition wires, which are attached to the
distributor cap?

Are you talking about difficulty removing the spark plugs from the ignition
wires or are you talking about removing the ignition wires from the
distributor cap? I don't recall which models and years, but some have the
cap and wires as an assembly where the wires do not disconnect from the cap.

My problem is with removing the spark plug wire from the distributor
where it fits. With my 91 Camry, the plug wire pushes into the
distributor and is fixed there with a plastic cap. The plastic cap is
where I am having the problem.

Sorry Al, can't help you there. Are you using OEM cap and wires?
