Second time the spark plug blew out of the Triton 54 head.. trained tec performed it the first time sert install and worked fine. He didn't touch the factory plugs on the other cylinders. But those blew out this is a Ford design error and flaw but they refuse to acknowledge it. Instead they rather blame the techs and the customer.
