#3 firing... aka the Left side of my i4..

the plug boot just keeps coming out. This is the only one affected. My area has alot of potholes. I notice that its fine if i don't hit potholes.. I'm also noticing that it when I get on it WOT its also doing it!

Going to buy a new plug tomorrow and see if that helps as a first step. Just wondering if anyone has had an issue like this? could it be something else? Compression related?

either way, i've got some work to do in the morning, but any speculative insight would help.

seen it a few times before. Usually just the plugs crush washer is messed up and/or just not sealing 100% so compressions blowing it out. Usually a new plug will fix the problem.

hope its that and the threads in the plug are not fucked up.
bingo. lol. Ive got the boot staying right now, but the boot is sitting about 2 inches higher than normal. Taking it to get it tapped, cheaper than getting the tool.
