I Have On Multiple Occasions Had Spark Plugs Come Flying Out Of The Head Of My Truck. I Have Asked Around And Heard That On Most ford Trucks And Econoline Vans Are Blowing These Out On The Regular. I Have Also Heard That It Is Due To The Aluminum Heads Having Only 4 Weak Threads. I Would Just Like To Point Out The Fact That It Has Happened Twice To Me And Can Cost Anywhere From 200 To 1700 Dollars To Fix Depending On How Severe Things Are. I Would Greatly Appreciate Some Research Into This Subject As I Am Sure Thousands Of Others Would. *ak

After Several Inches Of Rain My 1997ford F250 Light Duty Began Trying To Start While Parked In The Driveway. The Only Way To Stop It Was To Disconnect The Battery Cable. The Battery Cable Was Red Hot And Smoking. Luckily My Neighbor Noticed Or It Would Have Caught Fire. This Is The Second Occurrence Of This Problem For This Vehicle. Both Followed Heavy Rains. The First Occurrence Included Spontaneous Starting, Interior Lights Coming On, Left Side Window Failure, Speedometer Failure, And Continued Operation Of Fan, Windows And Radio With Ignition Off. Researching This Issue Has Made Me Aware That This Is A Common Problem Due To Water Leaking Through The Windshield And Seeping Into The Generic Electronic Module And Fuse Box Causing Multiple Symptoms Including The Ones Stated Above. *tr
