A friend of mine was in the middle of nowhere, Iowa, in his VW bus when the power suddenly went to nothing and a big chuff chuff noise emanated from the back where that engine-like oil leak resided.

Turned out a spark plug had blown right out of the head, taking the threads with it.

He put a bunch of wraps of teflon tape on the plug, screwed it back in, and made it across Iowa and Wisconsin no sweat.
