Default fixed my friend'* car

so he got a $750 car and it was misfiring, we got new plugs for it pulled the first 3 and they looked almost brand new, the last plug was in a really hard place to reach, fuel line and alternator was int he way but i managed to get it out, it was old, dry fouled, and a different brand, the previous owner didnt even bother changing that one, switched em all out and now it runs fine, nothing like getting a $750 car from sputtering to smooth running on a few bucks
