The coils will not come out of the spark plug holes. Is there a fix someone knows?

Let's start with what engine you have. Please explain a little better what the situation is.

I removed the cover over the engine revealing four coils. Only 1 coil came up while 3 coils stuck inside the shaft. I pulled on the coils but they won't come up. I believe the spark plugs are old cause as the one spark plug I can get to is really stuck as well.

The rubber bot is stuck to the spark plug. You will just have to force them off. If the rubber part comes off and remains on the plug you will have to reach down with somethinglike needle nose pliers to grab the boot and remove it. If it gets damages in the process, it will have to be replace. Use a little dialectic grease (not regular grease) inside when re-installing to avoid this problem.

Thank you, I applied WD-40 to the coil boots. The coil boots came off with a little effort. Then applied some more on the spark plugs after a few hours the spark plugs came loose. If you hadn't helped I would had never gotten this far. Thanks.
