Question about 1999 Ford F150 Regular Cab

2 Answers

My boyfriend & I have a 1999 Ford F150 with the V8 triton 5.4 litre engine. There are black circular components behind each spark plug on the valve cover of the engine. The one on the passenger side closest to the firewall has been broken off at the bracket making the engine misfire resulting in a extremely loud popping sound and smell like fuel extremely bad, it also seems to affecting my plow as I had a hard time raising it to park the truck when it happened in my driveway I do not know if it is an electrical part it does have a wire connecting to it also..I have not run the truck since the day it happened. I need to know what that part is called and where I am most likely to find it to replace it myself. It seems like it's held on by a single bold around a 4-6 mm size. Please help!!!

I agree. The spark plug stripped in the cylinder head and popped out breaking the ignition coil (COP- Coil on Plug). Ford has a TSB to repair if the plug threaded end broke off. A litle expensive and takes a very good tech.

The spark plug came out of it hole the threads probably pulled out with it so retaping the hole will be nesseccary very common problem the noise you are hearing is exhaust being pushed up through the plug hole.it probably destroyed the coil.
