6918 Ford Spark Plug Remover
OTC's Ford Spark Plug Removal Kit is designed to prevent breakage of the
during the removal procedure. The unique design helps prevent breakage by
locking the plug porcelain core -- this allows the complete unit to turn.
First install the collet holder assembly onto the spark plug hex and
tighten the collet screw.
Next, install the upper socket over the hex of the collet assembly.
Use the ratchet to remove the spark plug.
If a standard socket was used and only the hex portion of the spark plug
was removed, but the entire porcelain insulator and ground electrode shield
remain in the cylinder head, then we have a separated spark plug.
Thread the nut onto the collet screw to the adapter.
Continue threading the nut to pull the porcelain and electrode portions of
the spark plug out of the cylinder head
For Best Results, always remember to follow the detailed instructions
included in the kit.
It's that simple!

the 5.4L, etc. Fords:
DIY Ford 5.4 3V Spark Plug Removal Without Breaking Plugs
Broke a SparkPlug
This was a video that was request quite a long time ago numerous times by
people. One of the hardest things with removing the spark plugs on the
ford 5.4 3v engine is getting the plugs out without breaking them. once
you break the spark plug off in the engine you need a special tool to
extract the broken plug. However rumours said that if you extract the
plugs while they are hot you won't break them. so that's exactly what i
did had the engine at operating temperature pulled all the coils out and
used a impact wrench to removal the the spark plugs while the engine was
hot. and to my surprise non of them broke

A proven removal method that will yield good results. Having the engine
warm not hot for removal is ideal but is not always viable in every
situation. You are bound to break at least a few, and for that you should
watch my other video on extracting the broken plugs.
Replacing blown out spark plug
A common problem with Ford Triton engines is that they will blow the spark
plug out, usually # 3 or # 4 on the passenger side. Some people say the
only repair is to take the head off. There is a tool designed to drill
out, re-tap, & install an insert. I've done it many times and so far they
all are still holding. I thought you might like to see how it's done
before you do one yourself.

Hi, it's better to NOT break the plug. Soak them all in PBB before
proceeding. IMHO PB Blaster dissolves rust best. Better than WD40. Soak
the piece in the cylinder head with the PBB. Gently heat with the torch.
Try the EZ out. The flutes of the EZ out should be sharp, like new. The
bolt extractor should dig in to the broken part and twist it out.
Keep the socket, extension and ratchet perfectly straight on to the EZ out.
The EZ out will not bend, flex, or twist, it will snap in half. If the
broken piece of plug doesn't come out on the first try, remove the EZ out,
then soak and heat the part again. Try to reposition the bolt extractor in
the same cut groves to minimize creating metal flakes that fall into the
cylinder. If you drop any bits of metal in the cylinder, fish them out
before turning the engine over.
The heating and cooling can help the PBB penetrate around the threads and
the spark plug piece will slightly expand and contract. The PBB can ignite
and burn. Don't panic. Just blow it out. Some PBB will run down into the
cylinder, this is not a problem. Once you have removed the broken plug,
turn the engine over a couple times without the plug installed and it will
push it out.
The Bolt Extractor I used is 7/16 inch.
