    This is for a '88 NA Supra.

    Just got my NGK Iridiums and Plug Wires and shit.
    Start ripping shit apart, and coolant never came outa this hose before, so I pulled it out, and Plug Wire #1 was not in place, and Coolant just starts shooting from that line (The one above the Spark Plug Valley on the TB).

    It filled Plug hole #1 and some went into #2 and it splashed all over the place.

    It looks as though the coolant is being held by the Plugs and not going into the engine, but I cant for the life of me seem to soak that shit up.

    Any suggestions? I work tomorrow, but I got ALL night to get this solved.

    I need to know how to get that Coolant outa their, and need to know what to do (Besides kicking myself in the ass) if coolant gets into the engine through the plugs.

    Pull all the plugs and turn the key to make the pistons push the liquid out. (make sure you take out all the plugs)

    I used the top off a spray bottle and sprayed it out, then soaked some up with an old Sock.

    Pulled the plugs, let the little coolant that was left go into the engine, then drained the oil and changed it along with the filter. Installed new plugs and wires, started the car, no probs at all, not even smoke outa the exhaust :bowdown:
