2007 explorer w/ 4.6L spark plugs

Getting ready to change the spark plugs.

Anything special I need the know? All cylinders look easy to access even #4 and #8.

I read a service bulletin about only turning 1/8 turn adding some motocraft fluid and letting it soak for a minimum of fifteen minutes. Any idea on what years this covers?

Yes, use some kind of break free because the spark plugs are 2 pieces and are prone to breaking. If you are turning it out and you start to feel it torquing, run it back in and try again, even if you have to do it over and over.
