Guys,

I was told by the dealer that it was a $500.00 job to replace the plugs. I told them they were nuts and was going to do it myself. The Service Manager told me not to try it myself because the plugs get stuck in the block and because they break off and fall into the cylinder. When I got home I looked at my trusty Haynes manual and this is what it states "Ford has issued TSB 08-7-6 stateing that attempting to remove the spake plugs is likely to result in extended electrode breaking off in the cylinder head" It goes on further to explain this is for engine builds before 10/07.

I have been changing spark plugs on my own vehicles for ever, this is the first time I am a little nervous. I have a 2010 with a 5.4 should I be concerned or what? Any thoughts?
