My falcon has 6 spark plugs.

Is it possible to start the car with less than 6 spark plugs on?

How about 1 spark plug on?

What would happen if I tried to start my car with 1 spark plug?

or 2?

or even 3?

Would it just chug chug.. and then not start?

Or would it do some damage...

No damage, it just wont start.

You might be lucky to get it to run on 3, but it'd be rough.

Why on earth would you wanna do such a thing though?

oh yeah, then you could get away with only 1 plug :)

to the thread starter, maybe instead of ditching the plugs, it might be easier to chop the coil pack in half
