DIY Ford 5.4 3V Spark Plug Removal Without Breaking Plugs
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
Avoiding a Spark Plug Broken Off in Cylinder Head
Spark plugs can seize up in aluminum cylinder heads and cause big problems.
This is especially true for the very long spark plugs used in Ford's three
valve V8 & V10 engines. Pat Goss gives great tips on how to safely remove
Ford and other spark plugs without breaking them. Here is an image of the
incredibly long spark plug used in the 5.4L, etc. Fords:
My 04 Ford F150 makes a soft ticking noise
My 04" Ford F150 has a soft ticking noise. It has a V8 5.4lt. I have taken
it to 4 different Ford Dealerships to ask why my truck ticks...it started
at 107,000miles and they all said its normal. I don't believe that...they
say its bc of large injectors. I have Googled different reasons like oil
pressure problems, injectors or spark plugs. All i know is, it only does it
when the engines warmed up and only at idle. At 124,000miles my truck died
when i was driving it. I took it in at ford dealership 30miles away. They
put a new Cam Phaser in on the driver side " but the ticking comes from the
passenger side,HMMM??" changed the VCT sensor and spent 5 days working on
the timing chain. Oh, they also said they had to update the
software....what software??....It still ticks!?!
Ford 4.6L 3v spark plug removal - tips for success to address a misfire issue
Did this after searching everywhere and find nothing but negatives about
doing this. (except for the Mustang guy with the tattoo on his
arm, his video was helpful too)
I had random misfires and after changing the easy part (coil on plugs) it
still happened occasionally. Bucking and skipping like I was on a rough
road. My plugs were original (Dad bought truck new and never had them
done) and it has 104k on the odometer.
I can TOTALLY see how it can be a nightmare, but here is what I did with
100% success on a 2008 Ford Explorer v8 (4.6l 3v) - as a side note, the HTI
plugs at autozone were 11.99 each but they have a rebate where you get $20
back for 4, and they let you buy and rebate twice. Pretty cool to get $40
Take your time and dont rush it, slow and steady, on a warm motor with LOTS
of PB spray worked for me. Crank motor with all plugs out to blow out as
much PB as possible then change the oil when done.
Here is a follow up video with some parts that really made the truck wake
up and scoot!

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.
How Not To SeaFoam(TM) Your Car
Why do people think I'm redlining the engine? The highest it gets to is
3krpm, less than half way to redline. It sat at 4krpm at 70MPH on the
highway. Seafoam, when used correctly does wonders to clean out an engine.
This is not a reaction video, the engine does not explode or seize.
Me and my buddy having a SeaFoam(TM) party and he uses the wrong tube...
the entire $12 can drains through his air filter and onto the ground lol.

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.
