Spark Plugs

Well I called the dealer today and questioned them about replacing my plugs. I have a 04 F150 FX4 with 35000KHM and asked them if I should change them. Ford says not to change for 100,000Ks but he said if you want to keep the truck change them now, that it will only be a bigger problem later on. So I make the appointment for Tuesday next week the charge is $211 Canadian this includes a tune up. The plugs are $13 ea. So my question is how long till I need to change the plugs again, I know ford has a plug problem but by the time the dust settles I am sure it will be a $400 bill. So what are the rest of you doing change them every year or what????????

I did mine,myself, at 90K and they all came out with no problems. I bought the removal kit from Mac Tools, so that's probably why. If you are prepared for the worst it might not happen. I put them back in with anti-sieze and plan on changing them again at 150K. It took 1.5 hours to change all 8.

I was told (by my local ford dealer) that the 4.6 didn't have the breaking problem, only the 5.4l

cheers,
