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.
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.
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:

How To Replace a Front Wheel Drive Axle - EricTheCarGuy
If you start to notice your FWD vehicle clicking when you make a tight
turn, you might have an issue with the outer CV joint. If you make a right
turn, it's usually the left side that's bad and vice versa. Most axles are
easy to replace and the one depicted in this video is fairly typical of
what you run into. The main differences come in with how the lower ball
joint is attached. I think this part will give you the most trouble. I
often get asked about what to torque the axle nut to. To be hones, I don't
know. I've only ever run them down with my impact. I've never had an issue
doing it that way and I don't think you would either. Just be sure to stake
the nut or install the cotter pin and retaining clip if it has one. If
you'd like more information on how to deal with suspension noises, check
out this article I wrote on the topic.
