I think you didn't snap them in fully, make sure rubber skirt is touching plastic valve cover.

That's what I was thinking, but yesterday when back to auto zone n take the spark plug box, they told me I have the wrong spark plug for this car i use NGK Iridium, they told me I need to order the Bosch R6, so what I'm going to do today is I'm going to put back the old spark plugs to see if that solve the problem and at the same time find out if I inserts hem right.
