Just bought a 5/8 socked and it won't fit in thw whole, it seems like there is a sleeve in there that is the same size. Is something different on the flex fuel motor?

you could always try a 12 point 3/8" ratchet and a 5/8"s socket... there side walls tend to be a bit smaller then the 6 point 5/8''s

Default 2008 4.7 dakota spark plug socket

For any body who is interested, I found a spark plug socket that will fit. After trying just about everything, I finally tried one that was at Home Depot. It comes in a set of 3 spark plugs socket and it fits perfectly. Hope this helps. If you need a part number or skew let me know.
