Question about 2005 Ford F-150
I took my truck to a ford dealer to get fixed and they broke 2 spark plugs off. Once they get the plugs out and the pieces fall into the cylinder will that hurt the motor?
I have a 2005 4X4 F150 and it has 84,000 miles and i'm trying to change the spark plugs but they will not come out and i got a feeling that i will strip the hole out has anyone had this problem

You need to make sure they got all the pieces out. I did the same thing myself and used a high pressure blow tip with my air compressor and blew it out. A couple of days prior to removing those platinum plugs you need to spray some penetrating oil several times to loosen them. If you have one twist off and get stuck. What I did was took a easy out and tack welded it to an 3/8" extension with a socket that is tacked on to a dent puller with a slide handle. Once you tap the easy out in to the platinum piece hard enough to bite, then use the slide hammer a couple of times. It should loosen and come out. Good luck!!
