    Hi GRNMSTR, I've been reading your posts in regards to the notorious PITA plug removal on the 5.4. Get this, I'm at 112K on my truck and getting ready to change them out. I didn't know anything about this plug problem until about a week ago when I joined the forum. I'm am so pissed and upset that Ford couldn't have mailed postcards to owners saying change your plugs or else. Anyhow, what if anything can I do to make the removal go with as many less plugs broke as possible? I'm replacing with the Champion's as you recommended, that's if I get those plugs out. Assume I break some, should I pull the head, remove the plug remnants and be sure the cylinders are free of debris? I know Lisle has a tool as does Napa to get the broken pieces out, but my biggest concern would be cylinder damage. I'm very knowledgeable with engines so that's not a hurdle, I would just like to take the path of least resistance. What do you think? And thank you for your time. Robert

    I'm having problems changing out my plugs on an 04 f-150 5.4l 3v. 3 plugs are now broken in head. short of taking it to a shop, what can I do? what about removing the remaining plugs safely? I read your post about replacing with champion one-piece and nickle ant-seize. that I will do if I can get to that point.
