2004...F150 4x4 100thou tune up...help

I have a 2004, 5.4, 4x4 and I like it; now it's time for the 100,000 mile tune-up. I have read that via Technical Bulletin Announcements {TBA, if I recall correctly} that the THREAD-RELEASE agent which is supposed to make spark plug removable ""easy"" may or may not have been applied before the truck left the factory???

As a result Plugs break off and now the cost becomes even more COSTLY!!!!

I also thought I read that Ford does assist in those costs and repairs because the R-agent was faulty or non-existent!

I certainly hope there is truth in this...IS THERE HELP FROM FORD SHOULD MY PLUGS BREAK WHEN THE DEALERSHIP DOES THE TUNE UP???

I CAN BE REACHED HERE: beltloop at yahoo dot com

Personally, I wouldn't worry about it. if you've had the truck maintained regularly at the dealer if a breaking plug does happen to you, they'll help with the cost. It depends mostly on your relationship with the dealer. If you're easy with removing plugs on your own, take your time with it (spray lube/anti seize & let it sit overnight) and you should be fine by morning to remove all the plugs. Just be sure to spray the area good with compressed air before you take out the plugs, so no crap falls into the engine. There are a few threads floating around on this site regarding this issue, it'd be wise to run a search and read.
