I Was Driving Down The Highway And All Of A Sudden The Engine Starts To Make A Popping Sound. I Pulled Over And Raised The Hood. The #3 Spark Plug Had Blown Out From Its Seating In The Cylinder Head. I Had The Truck Towed To The Dealer And They Replaced The Cylinder Head. This Is A Known Problem And Could Be Very Dangerous Because Of The Location Of The Fuel Injection Rail. The Sparkplug Is Located Directly Below The Fuel Rail. If The Spark Plug Comes Loose And It Flies Into The Fuel Rail, The Rail Could Burst Causing Fuel To Spray Inside The Engine Compartment Igniting A Fire. The Spark Plug Problem Was Taken Care Of By ford, However Nothing Was Done To Guard The Fuel Rail.
