This is nearly impossible! The plug is too big to fit in the hole. There are cases where the FORD company has had problems with spark plugs breaking in half when they are being changed but that is not what you are saying. If something fell into a cylinder, you can try to fish it out with a magnet pick up tool. You can use a video inspection camera to see in the cylinder but if you can get it out with a pick up tool, you will have to remove the head from the engine block. Note: You need to bring the piston up to near the top of the cylinder to get to the item. YOU CANNOT use the starter to do this as it will over crank and part that fell in will not allow the piston to come all the way up. You have to rotate the engine by hand with a socket on the crank shaft nut.

Try taping a Mc Donald's - extra large shake size straw - to the end of your shop vac hose then insert the straw into the spark plug hole probing for all foreign matter in the cylinder. Be patient and do this for an extended period of time. You will clean out any large debris. There is no 100% guarantee you will get all debris but this is your best chance without having to remove the head.

If you have an air hose on a compressor you can blow air into the cylinder between vacuuming out and this may help to clean out almost all debris.

Remember, do this many times moving the straw to all areas and your chances of cleaning out the parts that fell in are good.

Good luck, and again, take your time.

Spark plug blown out there is no more threads in hole , plug falls into the head of the engine. How does this happen.


It most often happens because a spark plug has become loose and compression begins to escape past the threads. As hot compression forces it way along, the cylinder head becomes very hot and especially with alloy heads, the threads will burn away or melt. Cross threading a spark plug can cause the same outcome.
Often the spark plug hole can be fixed by drilling out or dressing up the hole (cylinder head may have to be removed) and then inserting a helicoil (many sizes). This is a repair object that has threads on the inside (for the spark plug) and an outside surface that when heated up will "weld" itself to the cylinder head. It is a solid repair.

Pw 50 will not start


Pull the spark plug out and put it into the rubber grommet that fits on top then turn it over while the plug is against something to ground it and see if there is any spark coming out. If not then you need to look at your coils and or ignition system. Make sure NOTHING falls into the hole so the piston isn't damaged when it is turned over.

Where are the Spark Plugs located in a 2004 Lincoln Navigator?


Hello, first how many miles do you have on this Lincoln? On that 4.6 L V8 engine they do have spark plugs but each plug has it's own spark coil located on a long rubber plug. You will see four little coils on each side of the engine. There will wires going in to the individual coils. There will be a bracket the holds the coils in place with a small 9 or 10 mm nut. Remove the nut, and gently pull on eac coil. There Hello, first how many miles do you have on this Lincoln? If you have over 120 thousand miles on this engine then it might need new spark plugs. On that 4.6 L V8 engine they do have spark plugs but each plug has it's own spark plug coil. You will see four little coils on each side of the engine. There will wires going in to the individual coils. There will be a bracket the holds the coils in place with a small 9 or 10 mm nut. Remove the nut, and gently pull on each coil. There a long rubber plug that fit in each spark hole. These rubber plugs are about 4 1/2 to 5 inches long.


Before removing the plug use an air hose with 50 to 60 lbs of pressure to blow each spark plug hole out which might have foreign object in the hole. Why, if you remove the spark plugs, and there is foreign material in that plug hole. Guess what, that stuff will fall into the combustion camber.



Then you will really have some problem. How fix if stuff fall into the combustion camber.

Squirt small amount of oil in the combustion camber, unplug all the coils and clear out there plug hole. Now remove all the spark plugs. Now, you can crank the engine and will the little amount in that cylinder that has the junk in it. The oil will wet the foreign debrie, and blow it out the spark plug hole. Then use a clean rag with with some oil it with a long screw driver to clean that spark plug hole Be careful that don't push the foreign material back into the combustion camber. Do this several time with little amount of oil.



Now, you can install the new spark plugs. On the spark plugs threads use some anti-shiz grease. Why squirt oil into the combustion camber? The oil is used to seal the rings on the piston to increase the cylinder compression. Just a small amount goes a long ways. GB...stewbison

When u replace a fuse and keep blowing, it means the appliance using that fuse is faulty and should be checked or the wires after it are naked and causing a short circuit. When a nut falls into a spark plug hole, u can stil fit ur plug but it wil cause damage to the piston and bore lining when u run the engine, it has to be removed first.

How do i change the spark plug on yamaha 250yzf, 2006? The coil stack hits the frame.


There is a drain hole on the side of the head that leads to the bottom side of the spark plug access hole. This allows water to drain but also lets all outside contaminants in. Often dirt, mud and crud will be packed around the base of the spark plug. After removing seat, fuel tank, and coil cap: always, ALWAYS blow contact cleaner and compressed air through both ends of the spark plug access hole before putting a socket to the plug. I have found small rocks and dirt down beside the spark plug before. If you loosen the plug before cleaning around it the off-road crud can fall down into the threads and the combustion chamber.

1997 ford expedition spark plug blow, its all strip. its an aluim head. is there a quick fix or do i have to replace the whole freaking heads?


The Spark Plug hole can be repaired. The professional way is to remove the cylinder head, and use a repair such as a Helicoil.

The spark plug hole is tapped out to a larger thread size, with a special Helicoil tap. Loctite or some other form of thread locker is applied, and the Helicoil is inserted.

Helicoil's are made of Stainless Steel, and are much better than the original material used in the cylinder head. (Be it cast iron or aluminum)
Drag racers use Helicoil's in their engines.

Tapping out the spark plug hole for a Helicoil, or using a special thread chaser, is NOT a good idea, while the cylinder head is still installed on the engine.
The tap creates chips of metal which fall down into the cylinder.
Using a vacuum to try to alleviate the chips, falls short of a good repair job.
