Blew spark plug from cylinder head. Out of truck for awhile. Did internet search. Lots of similar complaints. Problem has even spawned businesses to address the repairs. That tells me alot. I asked a 25-year Ford tech about it. He admitted to the problem. Ford doesn't admit to anything.

problem #1

F-150 Supercrew 4x4 5.4L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 85,000 miles

I have an 02 F-150 with the 5.4L V8 (modular) and have blown 2 spark plugs out of the motor. This is a problem that Ford has recognized and actually approved a company's product to use (www.fulltorque.com) for repairing the problem, but will not recall as a defect. I have spent $2200 in parts and labor (doing the absolute minimum) and I can hear another spark plug about to go. This has been a real pain in the ass.
