When trying to back out of my driveway, the truck made a loud popping sound from the engine. When I raised the hood, I could smell unburnt fuel. I then did some research online and found out that this could be a blown spark plug from the cylinder head. I have read many forums and talked to several mechanics about the symptoms I have experienced. All have said this is a very common problem with this engine and other Ford engines. I called Ford motor CO. And they were not aware of any problems with this engine. My local dealer was aware of the problem and therefore stock plenty of ignition coils on hand. This repair is estimated to cost me $400. Ford should be responsible for this cost, no questions asked.

First noticed ticking noise in my 2004 5. 4l 3v v8 engine. Oil was at correct level. I went down a road I routinely go, and started hearing a very loud clanking. Spark plug blew out of the hole and now trying to fix. Hopefully wont have to replace the head. Apparently I am not the only owner of this engine with the same problem!! this is just the one cylinder, but I have 7 more! am I going to have to do this with all of them? I had to have it towed to the only people who will try to fix it. Other repair stations say they wouldn't touch it and that they had, or have been threatened by, a lawsuit from the vehicles owner. This has already cost me the replacement of the ignition coil, a an expensive spark plug, and a lot of down time.

The vehicle started to buck, and the service engine light came on. When he took vehicle to the dealership they told him that there moisture was getting into the ignition coils, causing them to rust. The consumer had one of the ignition coils replaced, in 6-05 and in 8-05, the consumer had taken vehicle back to the dealership for the same problem. They told him that it appeared that it was happening to two other cylinders. As of now he has not had the other two replaced. There were no other problems with the vehicle .

Each time tomball Ford has repaired the vehicle and the last two times I have had to pay for the repairs. I would like Ford to recall the ignition coil on this model and pay for my repairs.

Failure Date: 08/19/2004

My 1998 Ford f150 4x4 blew 3 coils within 3 months of each other, culminating with the ignition coil in August 2004. I contacted Ford and was told I was being put on a "recall list" in case others had complaints. When the coils blow, there is a horrible noise from the engine and an immediate loss of power due to the spark plug no longer igniting that cylinder for the engine to run off of. Luckily, I was able to pull over to the side of the road and call a wrecker without incident. All three coils were replaced and I still have receipts. I traded the vehicle in due to the numerous problems it began having.
