Know your options. The dealership or service center will generally offer the most costly repair - removing, rethreading, possibly replacing the cylinder head. Contact Phil at www.pgsparkplugrepair.com for inexpensive repair information.

Ken, get them changed at 100k. The danger is the torque of the new plugs. Ford recommends 15-17 lbs., while we recommend 20-25 lbs. of torque. Remember, an aluminum cylinder head will experience expansion and contraction. Visit www.PGSparkPlugRepair.com for more info.
