Some 2004-2008 F-150, 2006-2008 Mark LT, 2005-2008 F-Super Duty, Expedition, and Navigator, with 5.4L 3-V engine; 2005-2008 Mustang, 2006-2008 Explorer, Mountaineer, and 2007-2008 Explorer Sport Trac with 4.6L 3-V engine; 2005-2008 F-Super Duty, 2006-2008 and F-Stripped Chassis, with 6.8L 3-V engine may experience difficulty with spark plug removal. This may cause damage to the spark plug and leave part of the spark plug in the cylinder head. Affected engine build dates are as follows: 5.4L 3-V and 6.8L 3-V before 10/9/07, 4.6L 3-V before 11/30/07.

CAUTION DO NOT REMOVE PLUGS WHEN THE ENGINE IS WARM OR HOT. THE ENGINE MUST BE AT ROOM TEMPERATURE WHEN PERFORMING SPARK PLUG SERVICE. REMOVING THE SPARK PLUGS FROM A WARM/HOT ENGINE INCREASES THE CHANCE THE THREADS COULD BE DAMAGED.

Spark Plug Removal Procedure

  • Remove the coil-on-plug assemblies and thoroughly blow out the spark plug wells and surrounding valve cover area with compressed air.
  • Back out the spark plugs no more than 1/8 to 1/4 of a turn. Using Motorcraft(R) Carburetor Tune-Up Cleaner, fill the spark plug well just above where the jamb nut hex sits (1/2 – 3/4 teaspoon). A minimum period of 15 minutes of soak time is required. The cleaner will wick down to the ground electrode shield and soften the carbon deposits in this time. DO NOT WORK the spark plug back and forth at this point.
  • Tighten, and then loosen the spark plug, working the plug back and forth. Some screeching and high effort may be noticed. The expected removal torque is about 33 lb-ft (45 N.m). Repeat the back and forth turning as needed until turning effort is reduced, and remove the spark plugs.

NOTE: This article applies to ’98-02 Accord L4s,’ninety five-02 Accord V6s, ’ninety eight-01 Preludes, and ’ninety nine-02Odysseys.When troubleshooting misfire DTCs (P0301 thruP0306) with the PGM Tester, have a look at the freezedata values for the throttle position (TP) sensorand the exhaust fuel recirculation valve raise sensor(EGR VLS).If the EGR VLS worth is greater than 1.25 volts, andthe TP sensor value is 0.5 volt (closed throttle), theEGR valve opened when it ought to have beenclosed, and is defective. Change the EGR valve.If the TP sensor value is more than 0.5 volt, andthe automobile speed sensor (VSS) and RPM valuesindicate that the DTC was set while the vehiclewas shifting, write down or print out the EGR VLSvalue. Then, drive the automobile on the similar VSS andRPM as proven within the freeze knowledge, and word theEGR VLS worth: • If the freeze information EGR VLS worth is more than1.25 volts, but the EGR VLS value from the testdrive is lower than 1.25 volts, the EGR valve wasstuck open, and is defective. Substitute the EGRvalve.• If the EGR VLS worth from the check drive issimilar to the EGR VLS value on the freezedata, the EGR valve is OK and isn’t the causeof your misfire DTC problem. Search for otherpossible causes.
