Question Nervous about plugs...

after reading all the horror stories about the plug removal, I'm at 96k on my 04...the truck is running fine except for a small issue (see my other post), and I subscribe to the if ain't broke...don't monkey with it. Should I hang tight for plugs or go for it? I have ford ESP until 160k, but I don't know how that would play out if there was a problem with the plug removal.

I bought the truck at 83k so I do not know at this point if the plugs had been changed yet...

If it ain't broke don't fix it. And since you have the ESP, if you have trouble with them, get Ford to screw with them. Thats the advice I think you'll get anywhere.

My 07 F-150 is my first 5.4l but my Dad has had three. Our 97 F-150 went to 160k (before it burned up), Our 02 had 87k on it before Dad traded that on our 04' F-150 that has 105k. We haven't had any problems with plugs, don't fret too too much.

I think the thing you have to remember is all your going to hear about is the horror stories. Your not going to have every person post that their plug change went well. But if there is a problem you will hear it. I just got mine done to be safe, and i was told that they all came out easy although he did mention that they looked like they were changed not too too long ago.
