I wonder if the sealing washer that is on this plug has been lost. These washers are usually aluminium or have a rubber insert, and without it there you are trying for a steel on steel seal.

A stripped thread can often still be backed out, that's no guarantee. Try for a tightening torque of about 15-20 ft-lb and if you get to that it isn't stripped.

Don't worry if it IS stripped, you can buy anoversize self-tapping plug.

By "stinky smell" do you mean the smell of unburned (raw) gas? If so then the ignition is not burning all the gas which could be that the computer is getting the wrong reading from somewhere and turning the fuel up. Possible trouble areas - MAF sensor located on intake just after the Air filter (Manifold Air Flow). The O2 sensors also regulate what fuel the computer puts out. You indicated that the fuel additive helped what type and grade of fuel are you using? Might try Mid-grade and a different brand of fuel. Was the 43 code the only one that showed up or were there others? Remove the Positive cable from your battery and wait a few seconds and replace it. This will reset your computer and take a while for the computer to get new readings but it will eliminate any old information that is stored in the computer that could be giving you a false reading. Usually about 40 - 50 miles of driving or around 20 times starting it and the computer will be up to date. These are things that I would try if it were mine. It's kinda like a darn Dart Board sometimes especially when you are broke [which is the way I stay on Social Security]. Good luck and if I can help in any way feel free to contact me.

You cannot pump the gas on a fuel injected engine unless the ignition is on.It sounds to me like the fuel pump is on the fritz.As for the heater vents the damper for chest level is not functioning.The selector switch may be malfunctioning.I would replace it with one from the scrap yard

Look for a 10amp fuse marked "indicator or Indic "
It may be in the fuse box in the passenger compartment or in the box in the engine compartment.
Keep in mind if the fuse is blown you will need someone to check for a short or the reason the fuse was blown.

Check the Mass Air Flow Sensor, you can get a can of cleaner specific for cleaning them for a couple bucks at the parts store. I'd just get 1 and clean the sensor see if that works. The MAF sensor is either in the throttle body itself (bolted on from the outside or in the air line between the filter and throttle body. That could be the whole problem right there. Good luck.

Starter relay is on the starter motor, and the fuse box should be under the dash, in the drivers feet well.
