Finally Changed the Plugs

I took the plunge this weekend and changed the plugs. I was starting to experience a miss and my mileage was going in the crapper, worst then usual that is. I went with the seafoam induction service / impact wrench with a engine. All went well. I switched over to the champion double platinum plugs with some anti seize on them. The only place I couldn't get the impact wrench in was the passenger side rear most plug. It was tight back there; ended up just using a 3/8 ratchet. Thank God it was willing to come out.

Congrats. What was the mileage at the change? Hows it been running since?

i have thoughgt about going with the impact wrench to remove mine aswell. Did you soak them in anything prior to using the impact?

I didn't but some guys have said they unscrew them a 1/4 to a 1/2 turn then spray PB down the hole and let it sit overnight. I only did the sea foam induction.

Do the 07 and up Expeditions have the 2-piece plugs?
