After debating on going to the dealership or just doing the plugs myself, I am happy to announce that i was able to tackle the spark plug challenge this weekend and pass with 100% success. Not one spark plug broke on me!!! I have a buddy that works for Ford Service, and he told me that with this job they have had a lot of success pulling the plugs out with the motor warm. So I figured I would try that route. I ran the truck for about 30 minutes or so, to allow the time to tear apart and once able to do plugs it was still warm. I backed each up about 1/4 turn and sprayed some pb blaster and let sit for about 1 hour. Sure enough all broke loose and had no "tough ones". for having stock plugs and 105K miles i was sure i would break a least half. I have been running sea foam through fuel for the last 3 months every other fill up, and ran once through brake booster about a week ago. I believe this made a huge impact! I will post pictures here this afternoon of what the plugs looked like. This weekend will be VCT solenoids, fuel filer and FPDM.
Congrats 04-fx4 i to was extremely nervous but it wasnt as bad as i thought the 2 back broke on me! I dine the warm motor also with aero-kroil as the soaker. It was easy, i thought about doing them in my spare time.. it was a pain but still better than paying 600+ for the stealership to do it
Changing the plugs on these trucks is definitely a right of passage.. You can't say you've truly owned a 150 unless you've felt with this lol. All joking aside.. Congrats man you definitely had more success than I did!
