While Cruising At 65 Mph A Spark Plug Blew Out Of The Cylinder Into The Fuel Rail. Luckily No Fire Was Started. This Seems To Be A Common Problem In The 5.4l engine. As Even ford Has Changed The Design Of Newer 5.4l engines, But Has Done Nothing For Earlier Owners. The Vehicle Has 40,000 Miles And I Was Told That The Vehicle Had An Extended Warranty In 11/02. However, ford Now Says The Warranty Was Put On By Mistake And Was Cancelled 1/03 – Not Notifying Me, The Owner Of The Truck, About It’s Cancellation. I Have Owned fords For The Last 18 Years, But This Will Be My Last. *la

I Bought A 2000 ford f-150 With The 4.2l V6 engine And I Now Have To Replace The engine Because Of A Defect That ford Is Aware Of I Have Done A Lot Of Research On This Issue And Have Found Thousands Of Other 4.2l V6 Owners That Have The Same Problem And ford Will Not Do Anything About It I Have Asked ford For Help In The Replacement Of The engine. I Was Given Excuses And Told To Go Away And Buy A New engine. I Tried To Make A Formal Complaint To ford But I Was Told That It Would Be Brought To Their Attention With No Paperwork Filled Out. I Am Very Upset With The Way A Loyal Customer Of ford Is Being Treated. I Now Have To Replace The engine But Cannot Afford To. There Is A Defective Seal Or Gasket That Leaks Antifreeze Into The engine And Causes Pistons To Break Rod To Be Pushed Out Of The engine And Several Other Interior engine Parts To Break. ford Motor Company Will Not Replace The engine Even Though It Is A Defect On Their Behalf Not The Buyer. ford Does Not Tell New Customers About The Problem And Continue To Sell The Vehicles Knowing That The engine Is Defective. All I Would Like Is For ford To Take Responsibility For Their engine And Replace It With A Different engine Or Make Sure That The New engine Will Not Cause The Same Problem. *jb

My 2000 ford f-150 W/ A Triton 5.4 L engine (: ) Blew The #3 Spark Plug. There Were No Unusual Events Leading Up To The Failure. I Took The Truck To The Dealer And They Wanted To Charge Me $3000 For A New Head Or $1000 For Insertion Of A Helicoil. I Know That This Is Happening On Many Trucks Like Mine. Why Is ford Not Being Forced To Take Responsibility For This Failure? It Is Obvious To Me That It Is Not Improper Installation Of A Spark Plug, A Few Too Many Coincidences For That I Think. *tr

2000 ford F150. Blew No. 3 Spark While Driving. It Blew At Partial Throttle, 45 Mph. Truck Has Been Properly Maintained, Never Had This Happen On Any Other Car I Ever Owned. Come To Find Out This A Common Problem On Triton V-8 engines. I’ve Owned Cars With Aluminum Heads Before So For ford To Claim Its A Torquing Problem And The Fault Of The Owner Is Disgraceful To All The People That Maintain Their Own Cars. Fortunately The Fire Was Only Temporary And Went Out When I Stopped The Truck And Killed The engine, But There Obviously Had Been A Fire At Some Point. This Is The Same Truck That Has Already Been Recalled Once, Still Have A Burn Mark On The Master Cylinder Reservoir From Where It Almost Burst Into Flames In My Driveway One Day, Thank God I Just So Happened To Have The Hood Up To Replace My Coolant When It Happened, Or The Whole Truck Would Have Burnt Down, I Managed To Pull The Fuse Before It Did, But For This To Happen On Top Of That Is Ridiculous. *tr
