Blowing out? Does that mean they go faulty or do the physically come out of the head? If they come out of the head you are either using an incorrect plug or the sreww thread in the plug is damaged. Damaged thread can be repaired but the head will need to come off. It entails drilling the plug hole bigger. Then a new thread is cut and a helicoil is screwed into the new thread which will return it to the original size.

    They're the correct plugs. They just burn out.

did you try a different spark plug wire on cylinder 8? if cylinder 8 has good compression i would guess either plug, wire, or injector. another possibility could be no injector pulse on the injector plug in.

Need to replace sparkplugs on 2002 ford escape


well replace spark plugs is not a hard job,when replacing spark plugs, good time to replace plug wires also.you need to replace one spark plug at a time so you wont mix up firing order. you need a spark socket, torque wrench, 3/8 ratchet wrench, 3/8 short and long extensions,you need a spark plug gap gauge.spark plug gap for 2.0 engine 0.051 the 3.0 engine spark plug gap is 0.052 - 0.056. just follow spark plug wires they will lead you to the spark plugs.warning wait until engine cool down first because removing spark plugs from hot engine could damaged the aluminum heads,use compressed to blow away debris before removing spark plugs keep debris falling into the cylinders.wear safety glasses if you use compress air and use small amount anti seize compound to the spark plug threads.good idea slip a short length rubber hose over the end of spark plug to use as a tool thread it into place.reason i use piece vacuum hose it will grip the spark plug enough to turn it, but will start to slip if the plug begin to cross thread.when installing spark plug, it should turn at least few times if spark plug start tighten before 1/4 turn thread cross threading need to back off start over dont keep turning you will stripped spark plugs threads in the head also damage spark plug threads, so be careful, good luck with job.

I have a 2008 gt mustang why would it misfire on number 8 cylinder


Hi there:

May mean that one or more of the following has happened:
Faulty spark plug or wire
Faulty coil (pack)
Faulty oxygen sensor(s)
Faulty fuel injector
Burned exhaust valve
Faulty catalytic converter(s)
Running out of fuel
Poor compression
Defective computer


Possible Solutions: If there are no symptoms, the simplest thing to do is to reset the code and see if it comes back.


If there are symptoms such as the engine is stumbling or hesitating, check all wiring and connectors that lead to the cylinders (i.e. spark plugs). Depending on how long the ignition components have been in the car, it may be a good idea to replace them as part of your regular maintenance schedule. I would suggest spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap, and rotor (if applicable). Otherwise, check the coils (a.k.a. coil packs). In some cases, the catalytic converter has gone bad. If you smell rotten eggs in the exhaust, your cat converter needs to be replaced. I've also heard in other cases the problems were faulty fuel injectors.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Spark plugs fouling in less than a week !! please help


Hi, Hitmagedz and the usual suspects are:
1. Dirty air filter.
2. Fuel mixture too rich or enrichner/choke left out too long.
3. Faulty spark plug.
4. Incorrect spark plug heat range for the engine type or service.
5. Piston rings badly worn or broken.
6. Valve guides are badly worn and/or seals worn, crushed or have come off the valve guide and are pumping oil through it.
7. Spark plug cable weak or leaking check for spark jump in the dark.
8. Faulty ignition coil.
9. Low RPM nonaggressive riding style.

My spark plugs keep blowing


Blowing out of the cylinder heads

Yes they do -- from 1998 thru 03 or 04

I assume you have had inserts installed already

That is a common problem ford could care less about

Now they went to 3 valve heads & a two piece glued
together spark plug that breaks apart

1983 honda shadow vt500c Fowles plugs every 5 to 700 miles


If the plugs are fuel fouled then you should look at the carbs.sounds like running ritch. If carbs are OK then Check spark if it is orange it is week(should be whiteish blue). If the coils are producing spark but week the bike will run but eventualy foul the plugs because it can't burn all the fuel.
