2003 VUE 2.2L
Default 2003 Vue 4 Cyl spark plug boot extra piece

I know its bad to have an extra part left over especially when changing the spark plugs.

When I went to reinstall the coil pack, the spark plug closest to the driver side would not sit flush. After removing and looking a couple of times. I noticed this small extra rubber piece but only on the one coil boot. I forced it down with the coil pack bolts and it started and ran fine. I removed the piece and it started and ran fine. Still not sure what I should do. Pictures aren't great couldn't get camera to focus.

Looks like it belongs on the tip of the coil and surrounds the plug.

Default Re: 2003 Vue 4 Cyl spark plug boot extra piece

It does seem like it belongs on the tip of the spark plug. But it does not fit into the coil boot at all. The others don't appear to have it. I could check again. Has anyone seen this before?

2003 VUE 2.2L
Default Re: 2003 Vue 4 Cyl spark plug boot extra piece - SOLVED

It turns out that it was the rubber insulator from my spark plug socket. On the very last spark plug I installed, the rubber insulator stayed behind so I never noticed it was missing. It matched the rubber boot almost perfectly so I never considered it being from somewhere other than the vehicle. At least I know what it was. Crisis averted.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
