1) 90,000 Miles On My 2001ford F150 Supercrew 5.4l V8. ) Two Blown Spark Plugs In About Eight Weeks Time. The Second One Left Me And My Family (wife And 3 Children Age 5 & Under) Stranded In The Desert Between San Diego And El Centro On Interstate 8.*ak 3) The Plugs Stripped Out The Threads On The Head And Aftermarket Inserts Were Installed In Order To Install New Plugs. After Discussing The Problem With A Couple Of Garages And Doing Some Online Research I Have Learned That This Is An Extremely Common Problem. It Appears That By ford Design Their Are Only 6 Of The 12 Threads On The Spark Plug That Are Engaged In The Head. After Some Time Engine Vibration And Expansion And Contraction Of The Head Due To Heat Allow The Spark Plug To Loosen Up. At That Point, The Plugs Increased Movement Has Enough Force To Destroy The Remaining Threads. From The Number Of Reports Of This Problem, I Believe That This Will Either Result In A Class Action Lawsuit Or A Factory Recall. However, I Like ford As A Company And Hope That They Take Responsibility For The Poor Design Before A Suit Is Filed.

After Being Stopped At An Intersection I Slowly Pulled Away When The Light Turned Green. It Sounded As If I Ran Over Something ,and The Truck Started Making Loud Noises And Jerking. I Pulled Off The Road, Parked It, And Had It Towed To The Local ford Dealer In Columbus, Oh. They Said It Had Blown A Spark Plug And Stripped The Threads In The Head – It Only Had 41,000 Miles On It. This Appears To Be A Common Problem With These Trucks And Could Be Dangerous In Certain Circumstances. I Paid The Charge To Put A Helicoil In As A Temporary Fix Until I Can Buy A New Head Because ford Won’t Acknowledge This Widespread Problem.*ak

Preliminary Data.. ford F150 2001 Supercrew Was Left Unattended While Shopping. Upon Return I Noted A Puddle Of Fluid That Was Not Present Earlier Under The Vehicle. Upon Leaning Down On The Drivers Side Front To Inspect For The Source Of The Leak Small Flames Were Noted In The Engine Compartment. Upon Opening The Hood For Further Inspection It Was Noted That The Rear Driver Side Of The Engine Compartment Was On Fire (appearing To Me And Other Observers To Be electrical In Nature) With The Brake Fluid Reservoir Completed Melted. The Flames First Observed Were Forced By The Molten Plastic Dripping Down Into The Engine Compartment. The Fire Department Was Notified But Thanks To Some Employees Of The Shop And The Availability There Of An Approved Extinguisher, The Fire Was Terminated Before The Arrival Of The Fire Department Some 7 Minutes Later. Comments Were Made By Others And Later By Internet Research That The Damage Has All Of The Appearances Of Being Forced By The Speed Control Deactivation Switch Issue. The Vehicle Is Currently Under Evaluation By A ford Dealership And My Insurance Company. Fortunately The Vehicle Was Unoccupied At The Time And Was In The Middle Of A Strip Center Parking Lot With No Vehicles Around It Should The Fire Had Time To Develop Further. Earlier Or Later, It Could Have Easily Consumed My Home.*jb

My 2001ford F150 Xlt Crew Cab Ejected A Spark Plug On 03-03-06. The Ejected Spark Plug Came From The Second Cylinder From The Firewall, On The Passengers Side. The Engine In This Truck Is A 5.4 Triton. The Fuel Rail Is In The Flight Path Of The Spark Plug When It Becomes A Projectile. This Has The Potential To Become A Major Disaster, If The Fuel Rail Ruptures. Because With The Engine Running The Coil On The Spark Plug Can And Will Ignite The Spraying Fuel. The Cylinder Heads On These 5.4 Tritons Engine Must Have A Major Defect And Needs To Be Recalled By ford Motor Company, As Soon As Possible. *jb

I Took My 4 Year Old Daughter In Our ford F150 Supercab Lariat Truck And Went To A Restaurant About 5 Minutes From Our Home. We Returned Home With Take Out, Parked The Truck In The Driveway, Our Garage Door Opener Was Not Working. I Joined My Wife For Dinner (about 7:00 Pm). My Daughter Went To Bed At About 8:30, My Wife About 9:30. At About 10:00 I Went Outside With The Dogs In The Backyard And Heard A Pop Sound Like A Fire Cracker. I Thought That Maybe The Neighbor Kids Were Playing With Fireworks, But It Sounded Pretty Close To The House On The Garage Side. When I Looked In That Direction I Saw An Orange Glow. I Went Around The Side Of The House And Saw My Truck Engulfed In Flames. I Ran Into The House, Called My Wife To Get Up, Get Our Daughter, Get Out Of The House And Call 911. 911 Told Us To Get Out Of The House And As Far Away As Possible. We Evacuated Our Home W/ Our Dogs In Tow And We All Proceeded To Watch In Horror (with The Entire Subdivision) As The Truck Went Up In Flames And Smoke, Not Knowing If The House Would Be Next. Under Normal Circumstances My Truck Would Have Been Parked In The Garage. My Daughter’s Bedroom Is Right Above. The Fire Chief Said We Would Have Lost Our House No Question And Very Possibly Our Lives If The Truck Was In The Garage. The Insurance Company Has Been Out To Look At The Truck; It’s Deemed A Total Loss. Everything From The Front End Through The Cab Is Burned Up Or A Mess Of Metal, Plastic, Etc. Melted On My Driveway. We Have Been Given A Figure For The Truck And Asked To Settle. No Further Discussion As To The Damage To My Wife’s Car, The Boat, And Ruined Concrete Drive. The ford Dealers Response Was “well, ford Is A Big Company And Has A Lot Of Powerful Attorneys.” How Sick Is That?! We’re At A Loss. What We Saw Was Traumatic. My 4 Year Old Daughter Talks Of The Event Every Day. We’re Thankful Yes That We’re All Ok And Know It Could Have Been Worse, But This Should Not Have Happened. *jb

May 19, 2011 At Around 4:20 Am We Were Awaken By Our Neighbors That Our Truck Was On Fire. Our 2001ford F150 Was On Fire, An Explosion Had Made A Huge Hole In The Hood On The Front Of The Driver Side. The Truck Had Last Been Driven The Morning Of May 17, 2011 And Had Been Sitting In Our Driveway Since Then. The Firemen Said The Fire Was Due To electrical Wiring. We Always Kept Up With All Required Maintenance. We Had No Idea Of The Problems fords Were Having, We Now Only Have One Vehicle To Get Around And The Worst Part Is That It’s A 2004 ford F250 Which Could Also Be A Recall Vehicle. Our Income Is Very Tight Because My Mother Is Very Sick And We Are Sending Money For Her Medication And Expenses, We Have No Way Of Getting Another Vehicle. Our ford F250 Is A Diesel And Diesel Fuel Is Very High. Someone Please Help! Not Sure What We’re Suppose To Do Or If ford Will Be Responsible.

I Own A 2001ford F150 Lariat 1/2 Ton Pickup Truck With 95,000 Original Miles On It. On My Way To Work I Noticed It Began Running Very Erratic And The Service Engine Light Came On, I Immediately Took It To The Shop. The Diagnostic Check Revealed The #7 Coil Wire Was In Need Of Replacement. The Shop Advised Me To Change All Coil Wires And Spark Plugs As I Was Nearing The 100,000 Mile Mark, The Cost Was $1,200. I Opted To Just Have The Spark Plugs Changed And The # 7 Coil Wire Replaced For $240. The Next Day The Shop Called And Said There Was A Big Problem, The #7 Spark Plug Broke Off During The Extraction. The $240.00 Cost Is Now $1800.00. The Shop Said The Head Would Need To Be Removed To Replace The Broken Spark Plug. I Have No Choice But To Have The Work Done As The Shop Told Me There Was A Big Problem With Spark Plugs Shearing Off During Removal Because Of Poor Design, They Commented The Spark Plugs Have A 100,000 Mile Guarantee To Work, However, The Engineers Didn’t Figure On How Bad The Plugs Might Deteriorate Making Removal Turn Into A Financial Fiasco. *tr

2001 F150,,,, I Was Driving Down The Road A Few Weeks Ago At Around 50 To 55 Mph , When I Heard A Loud Popping Noise Coming From My Truck . I Pulled Over Right Away, It Sounded Like A Bad Exhaust Leak. I Looked All Under The Truck And Couldn’t Find Any Leak , So I Had My Son Tow Me Home , As I Opened The Hood And Started The Truck I Heard The Noise Coming From The Top Of The Motor, After Looking Closer With A Flashlight I Found The Problem The Number 7 Plug Had Been Blown Right Of The Head And Was Laying On Top Of The Intake,breaking The Coil Pack In The Process. It Stripped The Threads Right Out Of The Head,,,i Did Find A Repair Kit At Napa For $220.00 And It Still Is Not Running Right , And I Also Learned They Only Make A Repair Kit For The ford Motors No Other Make Has This Repair Kit,, So It Sound Like ford Has A Defect With The Heads No Other Make Has This Issue. *tr
