2001 E-150 5.4L blown spark plug
My 2001 Ford E-150 with a 5.4L blew a spark plug out this weekend (5/4/2008). This is with 113k miles.
It is clear that this is a major problem with 5.4L engines. Just use google and search for "blown spark plug".
I called my dealer and they won't help since its over 100k miles. I called Ford Customer Relation Center and all they do is look up warranty and recall info. They say Ford is clearly not interested in helping with this problem.
So far, no one at Ford cares that their engines blow out spark plugs in what looks like a large number of vehicles. When you are missing a spark plug, the engine runs very rough AND it pumps unburnt fuel into the hot engine compartment. Gee, I wonder if this is a safe condition?
Quality is job what?
