Antifreeze in spark plug wire holes


Yeah... thermostat leaked and I got some antifreeze in the spark plug wire holes... been cleaning it out with paper towels and canned air... also used a bit of brake cleaner to dry it up a bit quicker...

Its running on atleast 6 cylinders now (up from like 4).... any ideas or should I continue trying to use canned air and brake cleaner?

Yeah man. the same thing happened to me. It was actually my first post ever on the forum. Anyways, I actually found that medical gauze worked really well. I bought a roll of it for a couple of bucks and just pushed it all down into the plug hole. That stuff will soak it all up. Just make sure you keep the plugs in while you're cleaning it out. You don't want any of that getting down into your engine. You also are going to want to get new plugs and probably plug wires. Mine was REALLY bad so i needed to get new ones.
