...but you don't need to smog 75 and below in Calif.
Washington, only have to worry about it being over 25 years old, or 2009+ with CA emissions. If it fits in one of those two categories, don't have to worry about smog checks or anything like that.
...hopefully they were just loose and spark plug hole was not stripped.
Sorry, it was just the plug wire that wasn't fully seated on the plug, not the plug that was loose. Hell, I tried undoing two plugs and they were on pretty really good. I'm hoping I can remove them with out breaking them.
