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.

Changing Spark Plugs in an 02 Ford Explorer - Tune up
This is a helpful video on changing the spark plugs on an 02 Ford Explorer.
This is a video taken after the actual work, but goes through the process as I was pressed for time to complete the work.
Access plugs on driver's side from the top.
Access passenger side, by removing the tire, and coming from the side. This will save you time and hassle by not removing the air intake, wires, or the angle you have to work at.
This should take between 45 min and 1 1/2 hrs if it is your first time.
Hope this helps.
