2002 Ford F-150 Question: stripped spark plug

as i was driving a spark plug blew out on the passenger side it also blew the cop how much would this cost to repair if the head had to be removed? -
Answer 1
if the head is coming off, replace the head. ford has tons of issues with this problem. we replace the head with either a used one from one of the major engine manufactures or a new head from ford. either option is not cheap. Roy -
Answer 2
An approved solution as an alternative is having a qualified technician install new threads in the spark plug hole. Lock-n-stitch has approved spark plug thread inserts. This can be done possibly without cylinder head removal. http://www.locknstitch.com/sparkpluginserts.htm That's a link for some more info. -
