Quick Tip. Take one old spark plug and saw an X across the threads on the bottom with your hacksaw. Clean away the filings. Oil it and thread it into the spark plug hole. This is called re tapping. Then try the new plug again. Has worked many times for me.

Hi, if the thread are stiped you can do nothing about that. Your only solution and less cost for you do not remove cylinderand take it to the engenniring to fit helicoil for you. Ask the engeeniring if they can or have mobil team to come to your placeand fit helecoil for size of your car plugs. You will not going to find other big size plugs for car specification.

1. Make sure its the right plug
2. Make sure the starter thread on the plug is not ruined
3. buy a tap and run a tap through the block, and then stick a magnet down the hole to catch any metal filings. also use a strong shop vac

Your local part store should carry a thread repair kit as it it quite common. Make sure you protect from getting metal shavings inside of the cylinder.

Honestly you should send it into the dealer. I don't think guessing will help you. Typically it is a dirty connection into the steering column (behind the ignition key) But diagnostics need to be run and a look at the VSS system (through a good scan tool) is needed to confirm.

Front hub to lock in to 4 wheel drive is locked and wont move. 2000 ford excursion v10 on one side only, is this a ford only part?? thanks


This is common. the locks due tend to freeze up and need either a greasing or replacement. I do suggest automatic locking hubs that you don't have to turn yourself. You can get the part almost anywhere
