Broken plugs are more common on the 3 valves and there is actually a specific tool to get broken plugs out. They break on removal from being in too tight. The issues we have are the PI heads with the very few threads for the plugs to grab onto.

Just make damn sure you do NOT crossthread a plug on the way in, use anti seize on the plug threads and tighten them to spec with a torque wrench.

Probably the easiest tune up on earth besides a 4 cylinder with COP, have never broken one in any way shape or form either you shouldn't need an extra plug you have to really be careless to screw up a tune up on these cars use your extension and socket to hand tighten them all in first then torque them to say 10 or 12 ft pounds not very tight they don't need to be very tight

Okay just the coil packs fixed everything. Didn't even change the spark plugs. But now I'm in another situation.... One of my coil pack bolts broke and some of it is still in the threaded part... What do I do to get it out and get a new one in?

You can use some kinda of adhesive/glue to have a temp fix to keep it on..
