    Okay cool... ya i will look to see if i can find the part before i start. Would turning back and forth as I work it out be a better way to avoid any problem? you would that put more stress on the plug? As for motorcraft plugs... do they make a solid one piece plug now that wont break off?

    Thanks this is real helpful

    Hey,

    I have been looking all over and found your step by step process and tips for removing the spark plugs on a 2004-2008 F150. I have just recently bought a 2008 F150 with 60 000 mi on it. i want to change them all and hopefully avoid any problems with them. I'm going to follow your steps there. But just wanted to know if it was okay to crack the plugs and let them soak to soften up, then as you turn the out re-tighten them a little as you go to free up any carbon build up that might collect in the threads? I seen one guy had mentioned doing this? Also where would you be able to purchase the extractor tool? Can you rent them or are they mostly something that is sold? After I get them out what would be the best plug to use to replace them. i don't mind spending a little more for a better longer lasting plug.they must be the solid one piece plug to prevent them from breaking in the future, correct?

    Thanks a lot

    Got it all buttoned up except for #8. Son of a bitch got rounded. Now I either gotta get a deep socket extractor or else send it off to the dealer for them to remove the heads. Son of a bitch! I'll be posting a write up soon.

    Yeah, Ford wanted $450 for the base charge and $100 per plug if it breaks. So far only one came out normally. Still working on #4, #7 and #8.

    I gotta say thanks a lot for everything. Even though I'm not done I know I saved a ****load of money doing this myself.

    I ran out of time (daylight) so I'm going to finish it up (hopefully) next week. If I didn't have impact tools I swear I would have never been able to do this. I got spark plugs 1, 2 and 3 out and all of them broke. With the Lisle tool removing the remaining piece was a snap. I wasn't able to get spark plug 4 out just yet, ran out of time. Also, spark plug 5 came out completely with no issues at all. Spark plug six broke but again I used the Lisle tool. 7 was stuck and I couldn't budge it and same with 8. I'll do a write on on your thread when I finish the whole thing.
