It seems like you may have stripped the threads out of it. Take the plug out and look at it.

Are you sure the threads on your cylinder head aren't stripped? If they are, you can fix them with a helicoil, but they are a pain to get right.

A new head will fix it but then you'd have to pay for the head and have to re do your timing and all . A simpler way is to helicoil but I've never done it before
