Honestly fords have been notoreous for there not so well built heads. I would try to lubricate it with a penatrating oil (one that foams works better than wd40) and give it your best shot otherwise find someone who is selling the same head. Also note to put on some anti seize stuff to prevent it from happening again.

How to replace spark plugs on 2005 ford expedition


Each plug has it's own ignition coil. Remove the bolt from the coil and pull with a twisting motion. Be sure not to lose the spring inside the boot. If I remember right these plugs are 9/16. If you have an air comressor, be sure to blow any debris out of the hole before removing the plug.Don't forget the anti-sieze and dielectric grease when reinstalling. Hope this helps.

How to change spark plugs 1998 Expedition


Hi Glloyd806

the spark plug gap is .054
This is at best difficult and if not done right can destroy your heads ( about $2700.00). My advice is to have the dealership take the risk. However, If you decide to change the spark plugs yourself you'll need to know a few critical things first.
The 5.4L has aluminium heads, there is a design flaw in that the thread depth is to shallow, only 4 or 5 threads. because of this it is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT to apply anti-sieze on the threads of each spark plug and torque the plugs to NO MORE THAN 14 LBS. Also, if the plugs have been improperly changed before, it is to late, and you will rip the threads out when removing the old plugs.
Still wanting to do it yourself? OK here is how it is done;
Each spark plug has it's own coil, you will need a 8mm socket to remove the retaining bolt. Then disconect the coil wires on the coil. pull out the coil assembly (coil and boot). they may be stuck a little so you may need to wiggle it out. Now you are ready to remove the spark plug. You will need a THIN WALLED 5/8in spark plug socket, at least one extension, and on the #3,4,7, and 8 spark plugs you'll need a universal joint. the holes that the spark plugs are in are machined very thght and I found that I needed to try several different sockets before I found one that would fit inside the hole. Remove the old plug. apply anti-sieze on the threads of the new plug and install. DON'T CROSS THREAD, THERE IS ON SECOND CHANCE! TIP.. replace the old rubber boot with a new one and apply a liberal amount of spark plug moisture protectant gel inside the boot, spark plug end, this will save you from spark plug mis-fire due to moisture in the future. Place the new boot back on the coil and place the coil/boot back into the spark plug hole, it may need some wiggeling. Replace the coil retaining bolt (anti-sieze), reconnect the coil wires. Now do this 7 more times.

In all honesty, take it to a Mechanic, because this is a real pain in the....

Best of luck, and I'm not responsible for any damages you do :(

How can i change my spark plugs on my fiesta mk5 1.4 16v


look up by the fuel rails and you see these funny looking things normally they have two wires on them and the spark plugs are under those and in most cases you have to remove the fuel injecter rails in order to get access to the plugs

Common thing, water drips from the windscreen washer jets onto the Ht leads and into the spark plugs, New coil, leads spark plugs and new washer jets, Ford are aware of this fault and now sell modified washer jets.

Good luck Davelee.
