2000 Ford Excursion ProblemsA Spark Plug Could Blow Out of Cylinder Head
There is a technical service bulletin for the V8 engines regarding a possible problem with the spark plug being ejected from the cylinder head, damaging the threads in the spark plug hole. If the vehicle is under warranty, cylinder head replacement is recommended. If the vehicle is out of warranty, Ford authorized the use of a specific thread insert to repair the head.
An oil leak may develop from the the right side head gasket. Oil from this type of leak will commonly drip onto the starter. Our technician tell us an updated head gasket is available to correct this concern.
When changing the fuel filter, if the fuel in the filter bowl looks gray or black, it may be a sign that the fuel injector O-rings are allowing high pressure oil to migrate into the fuel return system. Symptoms of this are rough idle or hard starting.
