SOURCE: changing spark plugs

Changing the spark plugs on a 1997 Ford Expedition 5.4L engine takes patience. Remember to start this project on a cold engine! I started on the passenger side by locating the Coil over iginition coils and cleaned out all the old dirt using some compressed air. Then I had to disconnect the electrical connections to both the Coil over ignition coils and the passenger side fuel injectors. Once you remove the small bolt which holds the ignition coil in place, use your compressed air again to blow out the spark plug hole. After that, you will need a 5/8" swivel spark plug socket and various length extensions to remove the spark plugs. Take your time because there is not much room for your hands. Before installing the new plug, check the gap and use clean engine oil on the new threads. Tighten the new spark plug and reinstall the coil over ignition coil. Reconnect the electrical connection to both the ignition coil and the fuel injector. Continue these steps with all eight spark plugs. You will find the ones on the drivers side are difficult because of the fuel rail gets in your way. Have patience and use swivel extensions to work around the tight spaces. When you are done, you will have saved lots of money! Don't forget to replace your air filter, fuel filter, and pcv valve to complete your tune up.

That's because they are hidden quite well. If you look at the engine, you'll see yellow plastic prongs (?) that look like spark plugs, but hook up to the silver tubing.  That's the fuel injectors.  BUT, right behind the yellow plugs, are black ones.  The black one is the connector to the spark plug.  The plug itself sits about 4 inches down into the block of the engine.  They are a real pain, and from what I can tell, you only have decent access to the first 2-4 of them, then they get too far back and start going under the dash (you'll see what I mean when you get there).

These plugs can be difficult, the plug design sucks and if you are not careful you can break them off in the head. Ford issued a TSB069-2008-1 on how to properly remove the plugs and also there is a special tool so if you break a plug off. My friends cost him 300 for a dealer to do it and saved a lot of time. Hope this helps you out.....

SOURCE: how to change spark plugs on a ford expedition

I recently changed them and it was a job when you have to crawl up and inside the engine area. But anyways, I started out by buying the E3 plugs, which don't have to be gapped and they do save a little gas plus increased in a little more power. (not much), These set me back $56. go with a basic motorcraft platinum or bosch platinum. I then removed the top engine cover, removed bolts for fuel rail and easily pulled the injector rail up (you will see to replace the o-rings on the injectors by some people, but if you're careful you don't have to.) This gives you the room you need at the back of the engine to remove the plugs. I started at the front by removing the small bolt holding the coil in place, then removing the the coil/wire with a boot removal tool. ( Again you don't need this tool, but it comes in handy at the back plugs). After removing the coil, I simply remove the plug, Apply anti-seize to the new one and install plug. I then apply Di-Electric grease to the inside of the coil boot to prevent moisture getting in. I then install the coil back down on the plug and tighten down and move on to the next.
1. you will need a swivel for the socket
2. you will need an extension, ( I use a long 8" extension)
3. Anti-Seize Grease
4. Di-Electric Grease
5. If installing a plug to be gapped it is .54
6. After installing, check for fuel leaks at the injectors.

It took me about 1 1/2 hours to replace all plugs and a dealer charges about $375. Good Luck if you need any further help get back to me and I'll help any I can.

I changed the bad coil on my 2002 expedition but now i hear a popping sound when i step on the gas........can you help?


I would recheck the coil wires from the plugs and make sure they are completely pushed down.I had the same problem on my Escort.Also push down on the spark plug wires.When I try to pull off the spark plug wires,almost EVERY time one breaks and i have to replace them.Either a loose coil wire or a loose spark plug wire will cause the popping.

My 2002 Ford Expedition shakes when put in drive. In park it does not shake. What would cause this, spark plug wires, plugs, fuel filter?


Spark plugs and wires,
Bad or leaky vacuum line
Bad 02 sensors, (check engine light would likely be on)

If it doesn't do it at idle, then motors mounts should be good and the problem is one of the listed above.

20 expedition location of spark plugs ?4.6


Plugs are near the top of the cylinder heads facing upwards. They are not fun to change as the passenger's side doesn't have a lot of room to work in.

Chaning spark plugs 02 expedition


no special tools,this is what tools you will need:.7mm socket for the coil packs where underneath them is a deep hole and down there is the plugs---8mm socket for the fuel rail bolts(for the left side sitting in it)which i would use 1/4 inch drive for these--- 5/8 plug socket---6 inch extension---3 inch extension---ratchet---swivel---which i would use 3/8 inch drive for these---and maybe long needle-nose pliers incase the rubber boot from the coil packs come off and sticks to the plug.

Engine starts missin


I would get this in and have a power balance test performed to see which cylinder/s are missing. Most likely a bad ignition coil, wire or spark plug depending on which motor you have.
