Re: [DML] Spark plug boot hopping



The plug wire contact probably isn't clamped around the plug terminal. 
The spark is jumping the gap and making a pop.  Skin the boot back a 
little, push the contact fully over the plug end and slip the boot back 
down the wire over the well.  Whoever changed the plugs was in a hurry. 
  Check them all out-see that all the plugs are new.
