The head contains an insufficient number of threads to hold the plugs when under stress so they have a greater than normal tendency to fail. This is the manufactures fault because the aluminum head was not threaded deep enough to hold the plug securely. If the aluminum threads of your cylinder head are completely stripped then the cylinder head will have to be replaced. Click on the links below to read more:

What is the stock spark plug type for an 84' f150? I think it's a 5.2 liter small block v8 with automatic transmission?

they didnt come with a 5.2, they came with a 4.9 or 5.0 or 5.8. heres the correct plugs for all these engines. the 5.0 and the5.8 use the same plug, this is autolite spark plugs part # is asp25. if its a 4.9 engine the part # is asp 45, hope this helps.

make sure all the wires were connected back to the battery there is a red wire that sits by itself and when you disconnect the battery it tends to fall also check the alternator circuit breaker could be blown.

What is the spark plug gap setting for a Ford F150 302 V8. Thanks as ever larryjar

it should be .054 however You should always use the sticker under the hood of your vehicle. If for some reason your says .052-.056, then that is what you use. The stickers on the truck will have the most specific info for that truck of anything. I need the year to be more sure, also when you buy the plugs, the parts store can tell you the exact gap.

1991 ford f-150

sounds to me like it is misfiring badly or is assuming this is a petrol engine.if its misfiring it is not burning the fuel properly thus causing the catlytic convertor to heat up excessively and destroying it.u need to check high tension leads .spark plugs should be correct type ,and coils. replace convertor afterwards as old one would be destroyed with that heat
