Has anyone heard about a problem with 2000 X's, v10 models, and blowing the spark plug out (and thereby causing the coil to break?) I had this happen recently, and the dealer made no mention of it being a problem with the X's, but I just saw a discussion on the old fordexcursion.com website talking about the exact same thing that happened to me.

Yes it happens.

Visist the V10 forum at www.ford-trucks.com. It has been discussed many times.

Sorry for the back luck.

hmmmm, I see he moved to "The Big Island", sounds nice!!!

Anyway, I haven't found any info on the other groups about the spark plug problem, does anyone know where I can find out more about that problem?

Yes, Nick. I moved!

Actually my wife and kids are still in Gardner until June 3rd. Then we will all be here on the Big Island of Hawaii.

I know that there is a lot of info on the sparkplug issue at ford-trucks.com. I mean lots. However...none of it has a magic bullet to prevent blowouts other than replacement of plugs prior to the 100K and to include sparkplug torque-down in a regular maintentance schedule. Say maybe ever 30K

Tell me, just to make me feel better, what's the weather like there today?

83 Light trade winds. Surf on the West side (Kona side) was 2-4 feet. Just another perfect day.

Sounds nice. Just an FYI for you now on the Boston weather: "The Usual", partly sunny, partly cloudy, some rain - some sun, cold this morning, hazy, muggy and humid. Another unpredictable NE day.
