Complaint / review text:
My Ford 2001,4.6l V8 Expedition blowout a #3 spark plug. I've heard this is happening to a lot of Expedition owners. I had it fixed but it happened again, this time the spark plug fell into the engine causing damage to the piston and pieces of spark plug metal to be in the engine which is bad. The mechanic said it would be best and cost efficient to put in a new engine for $4,900 verses a repair, because it will happen again with the shallow plug thread depth that Ford put on their Triton V8 engines (I did not buy this truck new but used). No vehicle to drive to work. I cannot afford the repair or replacement of engine.
