STRIPPED SPARK PLUG

1989 Dodge Daytona

Engine Mechanical problem
1989 Dodge Daytona 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 130000 miles

In this cars past life, someone horribly cross threaded one of the spark plugs. I can no longer get the head to hold a plug. Tried the sleeve thing and that worked but only short term. JB weld was suggested as last resort. My question is is there anyway to run on 3 cylinders without it being a total disaster.

Knowing the probable answer to that, where can I find a head for this 2.2L at a reasonable price?

First time here posting for my kid. Hope this is the proper format. Thanks in advance

Your best bet is to remove the head take it to a machine shop have them drill it o ut, put in a plug weld it in then redrill and tap it.

Unless you can find a head at a junk yard/ bone yard your not going to find too cheap of one.
