Contacted ford On National 800 Number. Supervisor Said ford Will Not Admit Occurrence Of Spark Plugs Blowing Out Of Their Engines. However, They Were Quick To Respond They Would Replace The Aluminum Head For $1,500…. Says It Is Not A ford Defect. However, I Am Finding This Is A Fairly Common Problem. The Local ford Shop Says They Routinely See This Problem And It Is Only Covered If Under Warranty. Since My Truck Is A Used Vehicle … Not Covered. When The Spark Plug Blew Out, The Sudden Bang And Following Loud Noise Caused Me To Swerve On The Highway…. Fortunately There Was Nobody Next To Me At The Time. I Got The Impression From The National ford Rep. They Will Continue To Ignore This Problem Until The Government Forces Them To Do Something About It.*ak
