It's a Ford Expedition with a 5.4, What a Piece of Crap you have to remove the fuel rails to get the coils out so you can get a 3 inch extension down to the plugs recessed in the heads!!Passenger side you have to remove the injectors to because of all the other stuff in the way!!You'll get it,I can change out a set in about a hour and a half!!But I've changed out Hundreds!!!You'll get faster at it once you have your system down pat!!

Well boys I finally got it in and threaded!! I had to remove the nut on the motor mount on the passenger side and jack up the engine as far as I could. That allowed me to get my hand in there and thread that plug in and torque it to 15 lbs. I used a short piece of 3/8 hose (2") on the plug and reached over from the drivers side with my left hand and BINGO!!! it threaded in. Boy was I happy. I couldn't sleep last night, thinking about how I was going to get that stupid spark plug in! I got up at 3:00 this morning and went out to the garage, by 4:30 that damn plug was in there!!! So now it is all together, but I have not started it. I will put all the panels on that I took off, and tighten all the bolts and nuts that I removed in this crazy saga.
I want to thank EVERYONE on this forum for the information, tips, pictures, and encouragement!!! That means a lot to a 65 yr old do-it-yourselfer!!!
