Before you ask, yes, I searched the forum.
So, I had a fault on #1 cylinder glowplug. I grabbed my handy-dandy spare glowplug, and started to change it out. Came out difficult.
I went to install the new one, and it seemed to be going in pretty easy. It built a touch of resistance, then, *poof*, not enough resistance. Inspection revealed aluminum head threads were stripped.
<insert long chain of expletives>
So, I cannot be the first to have this happen to them in the 10 years of these things.
I know I can put something in the hole to prevent debris from getting to the engine, drill out, re-tap, and add an insert, but I need the specifics for hardware, threads/inch (CM), diameter for drill, specific tap.
I suspect that someone here has that info.
I'm not trusting this to the Jeep dealership (with the CRDs, they cannot find their butts, even if you gave them a technical manual, a compass and detailed instructions).
The MB dealership won't touch it because the *vehicle* isn't an MB. (insert insult to local MB dealership here).
Also, no way in heck can I afford either....
Help a brother out with info hook-ups?
Anything I can get on Amazon is a plus, because I have a couple of Amazon gift cards...
