2005 Ford F-150 Question: Replace Sparks Plugs

What are the most common problems, when changing spark plugs -
Answer 1
It's very common on these engines. They could break and the threaded part stuck into the cyl. heads. I strongly advise you to take it to the dealer or to a shop who is expert and has the removal tools just in case. If the threads will get damaged it will be a very expensive to repair. There is a special method developed which is usually works, but not all the times, that's why you need the experts. Zee -
