Time sert ROCKS!!!

I blew #5 just before I was going to tear down for Lighting upgrade to my 99 expidition. Put timeserts in all 8 holes. Now running +4 pully aprox 2500 mi on build no problems. Timesert kit is super easy (lots o grease) but take your time and follow steps.

with the early heads it's the only way to do it. all 4, 6, 8 or 10 at one hit. with the ones i do i use the fulltorque ones as i personally like leaving the alloy thread in the head for heat transfer. but both work just as well so no biggie there . just do them all use the newer thread inserts and plugs . i have yet to see them have the same problem latter on with these kits while a helicoiled one sure dose . and thankfully both companies make a double over size insert to fix that problem.

I have had two plugs blow out one at 80,00 and the other at 120,000. I took the truck to ford and they offered to put a new motor in for $6,000 plus. They also said that they was aware of the promblem with the spark plugs ejecting. They said they would lower the cost on the engine $800.00. Has any body contacted the local news for help with this promblem about ford. Any body intersted in contacting fox 4 news in Dallas, Texas this week and explain to them the promblems you have had with this, they would love to hear your story

Wow! This thread was started in '02, revived in '06, and now, revived again in '07.

For doing a search, you deserve to be lauded...lots of people don't. But ya might wanna start your own thread.

Then again, for what you're proposing, it's old news. The media has been aware of this loooooooooooooooooooong known problem, and so has consumer affairs.

How about "Once again on 2010"? Kind of rimes.
Thanks for posting all this info guys.
I have had 3 plugs re-done, but now on my fourth I think I have to bite the bullet and have the head removed as it is the rear plug on the drivers side.
With 74,000 miles is it best to do the repair or are there aftermarket heads that might be a better option?

You can get stock '03+ heads that have more threads per plug hole. But if you're gonna pull the heads, instead of replacing them with new stock heads, or putting threaded inserts in your old heads, I'd just opt for a set of nice aftermarket heads like JDM has.

Get a nice set of stage 2 heads with a matching cam and be done with it.

Talked to my mechanic who has done the others and he says removing the head should not be necessary. So I am crossing my fingers as I would rather spend the $$$ on other upgrades.

It's not necessary. I thought you wanted to replace the heads.

Sorry, I misunderstood you.
