The truck burst into flames while parked. It had been sitting for over 13 hours at the time of the fire. It destroyed one car on either side of it. The fire investigator could not say exactly what caused the fire at the time, but made me aware of a recall on that year of Ford vehicles involving the speed control safety deactivation switch. Information on the recall says that the wire could heat up and cause a fire. The truck along with two other vehicles were completely destroyed in the fire.

I was driving down the highway at 70 mph when my Ford F-150 blew out the #3 sparkplug resulting in having to slow way down, fuel vapor filling my cab and a very rough ride. I have taken it to my repair shop where they will attempt to retap the hole, put in a new plug and see if that works. If not, they told me we are looking at having to remove the entire head. I did not realize how common this was with Ford until I researched online today. I also did not realize the severity of continuing to drive it to the shop this morning as I have read that the fuel vapor could ignite while running.
