1997 Honda Accord LX 4 Cyl 2.20L


Spark plug wire disengaging from its spark plug while I was driving the car.

One of the four spark plug wires loudly disengaged from its spark plug when I was driving the car. The car was running fine before this happened. After it happened, I drove the approx 1 mile to my home and the car was running very loud and rough and felt like it was going to stall out. The spark plug wire does not look damaged or worn. Is it only a bad spark plug or something more serious?

Sounds to me like the spark plug unthreaded itself and the combustion pressure blew the wire upward and out. Better hope that the threads in the head are still useable.
