hey, im currently in the process of doing this and iam using your write up but im stuck!! I need some help. I can t even get one plug out. I made the same slide hammer as you did but I don't even know how to use it to pull the plugs out. I drilled a hole in one of the plugs but don't know what to do to get it out, ive tried screwing a screw in there and try to pull it out with pliers but its too hard, I need more force. here are some pics.

heres the same slide hammer I made identical to yours ( don't know how you used it tho lol )


heres the very fisrt plug I tried getting out ( and so far the only plug with a drilled hole in it) its the plug closest to the egr valve.



I still haven't removed the egr, fuel rail, iavc or those other components I need to remove in order to have better clearance. I haven't removed those yet because I first wanted to see how hard it was going to be to pull a plug out ( so far ive had no luck ) andi tried pulling out the one by the egr because I already had decent clearance on it.

how exactly did you use the home made slide hammer to pull out the plugs? thanks in advance.

re-read the writeup - it states halfway down

"As for the plugs, just drill into them with a #25 drill bit like in the TSB, and tap them with a 10-24 tap. You can vacuum away the shavings as you drill. Honestly I don't even think it should be a problem considering the ports are so clogged that the shavings wouldn't even fall down into them, but if you still feel like you should vacuum it won't hurt anything."

I don't understand that part. What does it mean to tap into them with a 10-24 tap. sorry if that's a stupid question but Im just confused by that.

You need a thread tap tool at that size to thread the holes you drill out in order to screw the threaded rod into

Go to home depot or a similar hardware store and ask them for a #25 drill bit and #10-24 tap. I bought mine where they came in the same package as a set. Then buy a tap handle. Then lookup a video on how to tap something and then you should be good.
