They're suppose to come out easy with that Lisle tool....you mean they don't? lol.

Did you use an impact ? That's the only way for two piece plugs.

I feel for yuh, that sucks. Probably a real drag once they started breaking. Specially with 10 of them. Wish it were a diesel yet lol.

Nope. I could have taken it to Ford and the company would pay for it but I would lose out off work for a day. So just did them myself. Got it done and have NGK's in it now.

That doesn't sound too bad then. You got to do something a little different and got paid for it.
