WTF WED! Spark Plug Twerking Edition!!

This comes from a fellow Subaru tech outside of Six Star but it's so crazy we needed to share it.

This could have been worse but we are assuming called it quits before they got in to far and it went from bad to worse. Thankfully a skilled tech got it sorted!

We've made this very clear in the past, we don't post names nor do we mention who did what. We simply put out information. To HELP cover some odd failures we'll fluff a stories WITH the people who send them to us so that we can make it as genuinely appealing to everyone with all the "what-if's" included. This way we don't just "call someone out" for working on their car. As Ed said, there are no mentions of names nor is there any position of the post that actually says someone did something wrong. It's simply stating that things happen and the attempt to right a mistake unfortunately turned into a larger mistake. We apologize if you took offense to the post Adam but it wasn't directed at you or with any malice towards you or your attempt of repairs. As Steven stated, the person who is currently the one assisting you with making your wrongs right again, is actually the one who is giving the technical possibilities and variables of the failure. We hope that now since you have the right hands helping you out and making everything right that you'll have better luck with the car. Also, please refrain from personal attacks and profanity against someone on our page. We've talked about that in person before and you and I haven't had issues in the past and I'd rather keep it that way. If you have a personal issue with Eric please bring it to him directly.

To clarify, the plug was not cross threaded. During extraction it appears the socket was not seated completely and cracked the porcelain. Some of the porcelain was lodged between an edge of the hex and the head. So a socket wouldn’t sit flush. It then appears the socket was lodged against the tip of the plug and bent the plugged like an FA20 rod. After I was able to straighten the plug enough to get a 5/8 12pt socket on it I was able to remove the plug with ease. Nothing stripped, cross threaded, or permanently damaged

DeWitt, look in the mirror nice and hard. How was this post helpful to anyone? How about instead tell people how not to end up breaking a plug. Not only did you tell the wrong story, you instead flamed someone, not even your customer

An extraction of a cross threaded plug 🤔

When she sit on it wrong

Yes, I snapped it on the first turn. Tried to do it myself

What the actual fuhhhhh!?

This post is great. I think a participation trophy is in order here.

Josh, Naven. Would you flame someone for trying to learn and work on their car?

Snapped first twist

That was me. Thanks

Mark and the gang are awesome! Helped me out with some blown coilovers that I didn’t get from them or installed there (first mistake) and got them taken care of under warranty. Thanks Dewey for the rear springs that now match the fronts. I can’t thank these guys enough. The car feels so much better and doesn’t have that annoying clunk over every bump. The only shop I will ever take my car to! Thanks guys...

Gave me the best deals on parts for my 2019 WRX. Even helped me fix my car a few times in the past on my old 2016 WRX over the phone. Highly recommend them!

Never been disappointed with a single visit. I've come to the point where they are the only people I trust to service my 2014 hatch STI. Every time I get my car back from them, I drive away smiling and I can guarantee you will be too. You can really feel the difference in quality of work from the moment you step on the gas from their shop. On top of that, these guys very inviting, personable, and honest with you. Whether you know a lot, or not so much, about cars, they will make a point to inform you on every aspect of what they do. They will also respectfully correct you, if you happen to be misinformed on something, or simply not as knowledgable. Even if you just have some questions about your car, you can ask them anything and be sure that you're getting the most accurate info. Biggest job they did for me was fix my blown head gasket. After getting the car back, it drives better than the day I bought it. There is a sense of pride in knowing Six Star worked on your car and repping them with their logo. I don't think I will ever go anywhere else and I even go as far as saying that their shop is one of the reasons why I'll probably never move away from Illinois. Worth it.

Where do I start, the whole Six Star team can be described in one word. Integrity. They literally look out for you, your vehicle, and ultimately want you the customer, to be happy. I've brought my 15' STI there for the past 3 years ever since I moved back from the west coast and they have been nothing but a pleasure to work with. I've never been pressured or upsold on any work or unecessary parts. You must be insane to give anything less than 5 stars.

Marvin and the team were extremely helpful not just taking care of my 2002 WRX but now my 2004 WRX. From having my transmission swapped in a timely manner to managing my tuning needs for my built 2004 WRX. I can always expect timely service and genuine customer service from this shop. 5/5 A+ !!

Six Star is the only place I trust to keep my 13+ year old stock WRX on the road. Everyone in the shop is encyclopedic about Subarus and it's clear the mechanics put a lot of care into their work. Mark and his team are always thorough in their diagnosis, explain all the work up front (with photos), and provide fair, fully itemized estimates before getting started. After a number of disappointing experiences with dealers and other Subaru shops in the area over the years, I'll continue to make the trip to Six Star as long as I own a Subaru. Highly recommended!

These guys are the best! My first interaction with this shop was when I was calling shops around the Chicago area trying to figure out who could do a stage 2 setup on my 05FXT. I was immediately drawn to them due to their super friendly nature and their expansive knowledge, not to mention their reviews. I scheduled a time with them to run some tests on my engine to see if it was fit for a stage 2 set up, since it did have about 138000 miles on it. Unfortunately they discovered a head gasket leak/failure which is not super uncommon for these cars at this age. But I was looking on the bright side because several other shops were prepared to just slap stage 2 bits on my car with no prior inspections and I wouldn’t have known any better, and then I would have encountered much bigger problems down the road. So to fix the issue of the leaky head gasket I declided to have them rebuild my engine, as opposed to just a head gasket replacement or buying a whole different car. I went with this because they have a rebuild option that isn’t focused on power, but reliability. That was very appealing to me since I wanted to be reassured that I’d have no more problems with my engine and I also wasn’t looking for crazy power numbers. Plus, at least from what I could find, six star is the only shop in the area to offer a rebuild package like that. After having the car back for a mont after the build, the engine runs buttery smooth and absolutely no problems. Plus they threw in some extra torques when they tuned it because they knew I’d like to have a little fun 😇. Couldn’t have left my car with a better bunch of guys, I highly recommend this shop!

Very professional people! Dewey is the man when it comes to ordering parts! They’re always responsive when you have any questions. Very competitive prices and fast shipping. They got my Subaru’s ecu swapped in a day! I highly recommend this shop for anything Subaru.

From the very beginning till the end was nothing but professionalism and respect for these guys. After having a rough experience from a dealership I wish I would have came here first. Definitely recommend Six Star for everything between routine maintenance to performance upgrades. They know what they are doing. Thank you!

These guys are awesome! Recently had a motor built by them for my 2018 STI. This is my first Subaru and also first turbo car so these guys took the time to really explain the process and made sure everything was getting done correctly. The guys here don’t treat you as a work order either, they will get to know you by name. Im very satisfied with my car and even more with the knowledge I’ve gained from Marvin, Mark and Dewey. This will be the only shop I take my car to.

Fair pricing, expert mechanics, great customer service. Downside is that they are always booked; shows how good they are. Even if you aren't a customer, they will steer you in the right direction for parts or advice. if you care about your Subaru/ turbo-awd car, this place is for you.

I can't say enough good things about this shop. I've been working with them for years and they have always helped me out in times of need. Even if it was a simple oil change on my Crosstrek or a full engine build it's always a pleasure working with these guys. They will always be my go to shop!

Needed to fix an annoying leak that no one could source and fix but, Mark and the crew took great care of me, they found it and took care of it. Pointed out what needed to be do done and what as looking good. Huge thanks to Six Star Motorsports will definitely go back if I ever need work and would recommend you give them a call!

The team at Six Star is wonderful! They took amazing care of my Forester during its 60K/brake service, and the car feels great. Even took time to schedule a secondary inspection to diagnose a potential clutch issue. They are knowledgable, happy to answer questions, and make you feel very welcome. No doubt they are the best around, and only want the best for you and your vehicle.

Love this place! Always a friendly person there that's willing to help listen and teach. Great selection on items. If you want it and do not see it dont be hesitant to ask I'm sure they can get it for you and more than likely at a lower price as well. This place would be my first selection on localized performance knowledge based people. Highly recommended!
