DIY Ford 5.4 3V Spark Plug Removal Without Breaking Plugs
This was a video that was request quite a long time ago numerous times by
people. One of the hardest things with removing the spark plugs on the
ford 5.4 3v engine is getting the plugs out without breaking them. once
you break the spark plug off in the engine you need a special tool to
extract the broken plug. However rumours said that if you extract the
plugs while they are hot you won't break them. so that's exactly what i
did had the engine at operating temperature pulled all the coils out and
used a impact wrench to removal the the spark plugs while the engine was
hot. and to my surprise non of them broke

Avoiding a Spark Plug Broken Off in Cylinder Head
Spark plugs can seize up in aluminum cylinder heads and cause big problems.
This is especially true for the very long spark plugs used in Ford's three
valve V8 & V10 engines. Pat Goss gives great tips on how to safely remove
Ford and other spark plugs without breaking them. Here is an image of the
incredibly long spark plug used in the 5.4L, etc. Fords:
My 04 Ford F150 makes a soft ticking noise
My 04" Ford F150 has a soft ticking noise. It has a V8 5.4lt. I have taken
it to 4 different Ford Dealerships to ask why my truck ticks...it started
at 107,000miles and they all said its normal. I don't believe that...they
say its bc of large injectors. I have Googled different reasons like oil
pressure problems, injectors or spark plugs. All i know is, it only does it
when the engines warmed up and only at idle. At 124,000miles my truck died
when i was driving it. I took it in at ford dealership 30miles away. They
put a new Cam Phaser in on the driver side " but the ticking comes from the
passenger side,HMMM??" changed the VCT sensor and spent 5 days working on
the timing chain. Oh, they also said they had to update the
software....what software??....It still ticks!?!
How To SeaFoam 2004-2008 5.4L Ford F150
Here is a quick vid of how to SeaFoam a 2004-2008 Ford F150 5.4L V8. The
best way to do it that I have found is through the Brake Booster Line, as it feeds all the cylinders at
Disconnect the Brake Booster Line,
or whatever Vacuum line you plan to use. With the engine running, start
feeding the line into the bottle to suck out the fluid. You will have to
have someone inside the vehicle to keep the RPM's between 1600 and 2000.
Going over wont blow your engine or anything, but it doesnt allow the fluid
to fully saturate the components.
After you have sucked up the amount of fluid that you want to use, turn off
the engine and let it sit for 5 minutes. After the 5 minutes, go ahead and
start it up and start revving the engine as you see in the video. This
will clean out most of the gunk and buildup, but like I said in the video,
after the smoke starts to dissipate, take the vehicle for a drive. Punch
it once or twice to make sure to dislodge all the extra crap.
This stuff will work wonders. You will notice a smoother idle and you will
gain a bit of power that has been lost to the carbon buildup in the engine.
Sorry for the undershirt and shorts, it was a lazy Saturday haha.

A proven removal method that will yield good results. Having the engine
warm not hot for removal is ideal but is not always viable in every
situation. You are bound to break at least a few, and for that you should
watch my other video on extracting the broken plugs.
