Blown plug repair
I just experienced the all too common blown spark plug on my 2003. I have read a lot of great information on this forum focused on how to make repairs using the Timesert kit or helicoils.
However, I have two more basic questions that i coukd not find answers to:
#1 With the plug blown, is it safe for me to drive my truck 15 miles back to my home for repairs?
#2 The plug itself looks fine, no thread damage. Is it possible that the plug just worked its way out and that I do not need to repair the engine? I was considering just trying to put the plug back in and replacing the COP, which did break with the blow out.
