Ford blown spark plug repair - Time Sert review
Vehicle: 02 Ford Explorer V8 4.6L
Many Ford engines from 1997 to 2008 with Triton heads may blow out a spark plug. Many companies have come out with a relatively inexpensive fix that allows the Head to remain on the engine, thus saving a lot of money in repairs. Although I have rebuilt engines in the past, I have never repaired this kind of damage to an engine. I wanted to record whether Time Sert's claims were as easy as they proclaimed. The answer for me was mostly Yes.
The only criticism was that I had no objective idea how much counterboring I needed to do. With the engine that I had, a Lot of counterboring needed to be done and I thought I had gone too far at one point simply due to the amount of time spent with this operation. I have done a second repair and decided to only use a hand ratchet on the counterbore. It took two hours to counterbore alone. I recommend an air ratchet for this reason.
Bottom line is that this works; It's relatively inexpensive; and I was overall happy with the product. As well, I can now replace more threads without buying anything more since it came with 5 inserts.
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.
