Hey guys,

my mechanic (my uncle) changing the spark plugs today on my 03 ford ba 5.4l 3 valve noticed that the spark plugs had never been changed.... anyway long story short the second spark plug broke in.. :(

What is the easiest way to get this out without taking the heads off... which will cost an arm and a leg..????

As much as I has to say go directly to ford if u think the worst because better get the job done right instead of f**k them up... I can't drive me baby or a week... I had to put the broken spark plug back in and drive it home.. Running on 7... And f**k it feel so s**t.
Get them changed guys and stop fearing for the worse coz if they r going to break they will break if u do them now or later. Learn from my misfortune... :(

but hey if u get it done now... soon then you won't have to stress

good luck guys =D
