yeah i would probably try the screwdriver trick but if it ripped off the actual plug, it might be in there pretty tight. I dont think ive seen needle nose plyers that skinny and long to fit in there but i havent searched for many needle nose plyers.

same thing happened to me on my old da, i just used a screw driver and slid it up along the inside wall just enough so i could grab it with something.
same thing happened to, I even had the plug break on me completely leaving the metal and wire stuck on there...wire hanger, flat head, and patients is key..and a few curse words lol

another option is use a "J" hook. When you buy a set of (usually) four picks, they are usually straight, bent 90 degrees "Z" shape, and a "J" hook.

I'm guessing you can probably hook it pretty good and yank it out that way.

the valve cover gaskets are rubber you shouldn't need a new one unless yours is brittle and if the screw driver and hanger dont work you can find the pliers around i have a set i had to try and get something out too.

yea screw driver should do it... worst that could happen is you have to take off the valve cover to get it (in which cause, make sure to put on a new valve cover gasket)


yeah, ive had the same one forever, ill take it off when im going the valve adjustments monthly and I will just plop it into a bucket of rubber treatment for an hour or two and clean it up.
