I have a Toyota Camry 1996 4 Cylinder. The cylinders are plastic covered shafts which connect to the spark plugs, one of the shaft is cracked and wont connect properly to the sparker. What can happen if I continue to drive my car like this, is this the reason why my car finally starts after trying about 100 clicks to start my engine? What is the best was of going about fixing this problem?

I have no idea what you are talking about. BUT, I am guessing you are talking about the spark plug wire. I guess it is cracked and it won't stay on the spark plug all the way. So what you have to do is get new spark plug wires. If you don't the vehicle might misfire and this will cause damage to your catalytic converter. The click you are talking about when you try to start it is most likely coming from the starter. You either have to replace the contacts in the starter or replace the starter. I'm just guessing on what you are talking about. Please let me know if I am right or not.

Yeah, that sounds about right. Any estimates on how much it will be to replace the wire. (Which is only one out of the 4) Estimates on spark plug replacement?

Quick answer! I like this sites forums =)

If your replacing the spark plugs and wires your self your probably talking about 50-100 depending on what area you are in and how good of parts you want. If you go to a shop probably at least $200 to have them do it. You can't just buy one spark plug you have to buy all 4. That is unless you find a parts place that sells them 1 at a time and you find the right one. HTH.
