Ford F150 Blown Spark Plug Problem




What do you think about this video?

Gene Eurich: Like every one else, I have owned Fords all my life. Coming home last night I blew a spark plug out of the motor. With all the coments and unsatisfied Ford owners you would think ford would do some thing to make it right. I know now why I see more and more chevs and dodges on the road. Ford use to be reliable and built for life sense then all that has happened was you pay more for less with Ford. What ever happened to built ford tough????? Thanks, Ford´╗┐

hawaiianflavor69: had the same problem on my 1997 Ford Expedition 5.4L Triton v8 but it was on a #6 Cylinder. I had to drive it to a mechanic and he re-threaded with an insert kit and charged me $360 . It was a shock but after all was done I realized that I should of noticed it before, because two days before an incident, I heard a loud ticking sound coming from an engine and when I drove my truck around town, it felt like the engine was losing power I thought i was imagining it but it happened. LIVEAnLEARN

1970gtosd: Ford engineers did not leave enough thread for the sparkplugs?!?! and expansion and contraction of aluminum & metal and eventualy the threads let go! You can find this and other problems @ ford modular engines wikipedia. there is a cam phaser problems with these engines also and livernois motorsports has a package you can buy from them to solve the problem!

AtomicEthan: Sounds like a stanley steamer

spk9grsch: do what i'm doing, i've got a 98 expedition and i will be swapping the motor and trans and computer for one out of a 2003 ford lightning svt buy a totaled lightning with rear end damage and just swap the powertrain

JelleBongaerts: lol!

paintballer0816: happened to my 97 5.4 Today! awesome right. how much did it cost you to get it rethreaded?

spk9grsch: they didn't even make a 5.4 triton for 1997 expeditions

Jordan Hooper: Me and my buddy joke about this. We call it "SPE" or "Spark Plug Ejection". These trucks are HORRIBLE about it. Aluminum heads, bad idea on a truck. I have a 99 Lariat 5.4 and had a coil pack lay down, but it didn't do this. But my buddy's 2000 5.4 did. It's a common problem. Cost him $70 a pop to get em fixed, he did it 4 times and got rid of it. Almost sounds like too much compression and its stripping the threads? Idk.

timcat100: Buyer beware. This has happened twice now on my company 2010 E150. fist tab was 1600.00 plus 250.00 tow the second tab they had to pull the engine new head...still in the shop 10 days later the tab is over 5 grand. I personally will never buy a ford in my lifetime yes ford gets a lower case f for ford and BIG F for fail.

1970gtosd: Yes they did!

Charlann Majerus: people that pay 5 grand are dumb you can fix this problem for $50 using a heli coil

Evan Muchow: Lol ok, is it gonna hurt the truck if I drive it while it ticking? Also if I retread it myself how do I keep the shaving outta the piston chamber ?

R3DLIN3S: rethreaded and it will be fine. ford caused this.

Evan Muchow: This happened to me... freaking sucked.. So I can get it re threaded and everything should be fine? Do you know what might have caused this?

spk9grsch: what causes them to to that? being to tight or loose or rust???

videoman223: Got the same problem once haha,

1970gtosd: I'd be scared to look under the hood with it running might get a sparkplug in the eye!!!

WelcomeBackHome: That's strange! Because my 1997 Expedition has a 5.4 Liter Triton in it! And it just blew out a plug and a coil last night...woo-hoo! This sucks.
