I lost a short extension while doing the fire wall spark plugs. I dropped 2 of them but found one. The car eats tools. The passenger side spark plug. My hands don't work like they use to but the car runs great. All plugs looked great. The front bank where something to loosen, lots of rust. I do put antisease on the threads. Thay where almost 3 years old.. I will find the extension one day. Now I am iceing my back with meds for pain.

Use better plugs... Base plugs from AC Autolite etc often does not have nickle etc coating as rust protection.
Front side V6 and L4 rust is a major pain rain etc gets to then thru the vents and lid edge. Worse when Recall work removes lid edge rubber.

HEI work w/ most Platinum plugs and only a little more $. Beside lasting longer have anti rust coating on metal.

Cone plugs should not be very tight.
Cone is a sealing area and a "lock washer" sim to cone lug nuts.
Many torque way to tight and causes big problems. Anti seize is lube to tighten and makes that worse for most users.

Antisieze works great on plugs. Your job could have been worse.
