Replacing FORD Spark Plugs has always been a routine maintenance procedure, but in some vehicles, the process can be expensive. A broken spark plug can trigger a total engine failure. Ken Hansen, a truck owner, says he has spent thousands of dollars replacing spark plugs on his 2006 F-150 pickup. In one case, he had to replace two plugs that broke off during routine maintenance.
While there are other brands of spark plugs available for cars and trucks, Ford Spark Plugs are the only plugs that are specifically designed for Ford vehicles. These plugs are rigorously tested and are made to meet the quality standards set forth by Ford Motor Company. Your vehicle will run more smoothly with a higher-quality spark plug.
The spark plug is designed to fit into a small hole in the cylinder head. In Ford vehicles, this spark plug extension is designed to fit into the cylinder head tightly. Occasionally, the plug tip will become stuck and cannot be removed. The problem with this type of spark plug is that it is prone to seizing to the aluminum cylinder head. If you do not remove the plug correctly, it could break loose and cause a serious engine failure.
The two-piece spark plug used in Ford vehicles is a poor design choice. It was used in millions of Ford V8 engines. You could get stuck with a blown spark plug and incur a heavy repair bill. The three-valve design of Ford vehicles requires a different spark plug design than conventional V8 engines.
When replacing FORD Spark Plugs, make sure you use the proper tools. Special tools are available for this process. These tools can help remove spark plug fragments from the head. You can also use special tools that help you remove the porcelain. The Ford spark plugs feature DiamondFire technology, which has been recognized by the EPA as beneficial for emissions control.
Spark plugs are very important for the engine's performance. When they're old and clogged, the vehicle won't work right and may cause problems with fuel economy and acceleration. That's why it is important to check the plugs on your vehicle regularly. If they have reached the mileage limit, it's time for a replacement.
