How to change the spark plugs on a 1997 Ford Expedition?

Answer . Changing the spark plugs on a 1997 Ford Expedition 5.4L engine takes patience. Remember to start this project on a cold engine! I started on the passenger side by locating the Coil over iginition coils and cleaned out all the old dirt using some compressed air. Then I had to disconnect the electrical connections to both the Coil over ignition coils and the passenger side fuel injectors. Once you remove the small bolt which holds the ignition coil in place, use your compressed air again to blow out the spark plug hole. After that, you will need a 5/8" swivel spark plug socket and various length extensions to remove the spark plugs. Take your time because there is not much room for your hands. Before installing the new plug, check the gap and use clean engine oil on the new threads. Tighten the new spark plug and reinstall the coil over ignition coil. Reconnect the electrical connection to both the ignition coil and the fuel injector. Continue these steps with all eight spark plugs. You will find the ones on the drivers side are difficult because of the fuel rail gets in your way. Have patience and use swivel extensions to work around the tight spaces. When you are done, you will have saved lots of money! Don't forget to replace your air filter, fuel filter, and pcv valve to complete your tune up.

How do you replace the spark plugs in a Ford Expedition?

I've replaced plugs on quite a few 5.4Ls now (the 4.6L with plugwires is similar) and once you've done a set they really are not asbad as they look. Contrary to what some people will say, you don'thave to remove the fuel rails. The Coil on Plug (COP) assemblieswill come out past the fuel rail. I take an old piece of seat foamand put it on top of the radiator support to the engine to allow meto lay on it without hurting my tummy. It makes the job way lesspainful. . Start by removing the cover over the throttle body (the blackplastic cover that says "5.4" on it). There are three 10mm headbolts that hold it on. Next remove the air intake tube from thethrottle body to the air filter housing. You loosen the hose clampsat either end of it; disconnect the connector on the AT (about halfway up the air intake hose), the pull out the small hoses that gointo the air intake tube near the throttle body. Next remove thebrace from the power steering reservoir to thermostat housing.There are three 8mm or 5/16" head screws that hold it on. Now youshould be able to see the COPs. . To remove the COPs you can use a 7mm or 9/32" wrench or nutdriver or socket, extension and ratchet or all of the above. If youturn the fuel injectors to the side it will give you more room towork with the COPs. Unplug the connector on each COP by pressingthe tab in and pulling on the connector. After you're done thatjust twist and pull the COPs out. A couple of the COPs on thedriver's side and #4 on the passenger's side are a bit hard to getat but with some patience they will come out. . After you've removed the COPs take a blow gun and blow out thespark plug holes. Don't be surprised if there is rust and junk inthem. Next you can actually remove the plugs. Use a combination ofextensions, swivels (universal joints), sockets and ratchets to getat them. Whatever works best for you is good. . On the harder ones to get at I usually use a socket with a 4"extension, then a swivel, then a long extension, then the ratchet.The plugs are way down in the hole which is why I use the extensionthen the swivel. The swivel makes it easier to clear thefirewall. . Set the gap on the new plugs to whatever it says on youremissions decal on the radiator support....usually .052-.056".Apply a small amount of anti-seize to the threads only on the sparkplug. You can use a piece of vacuum hose or fuel hose over the endof the plug to get it started in the hole. Carefully start theplugs in their holes. If you can't get them most of the way in byhand with the hose take a look and see why not. Cross threaded plugthreads are no fun! The plugs are to be tightened to 13 lb-ft.which is just hand tight with a short ratchet. Don't over tightenthem! The threads in the aluminum heads have enough problems as itis. After that just put everything back together in reverse order.Apply some dielectric grease to the plug boots as well to help sealthem. . I've done enough of these that I can replace the plugs inapproximately 45 minutes but don't be surprised if the first timeyou do it takes a few hours.

Where are the spark plugs on a 1999 Ford Expedition?

in the cylinder head.... LOL. Just kidding a bit... The engines use what is called COP type ignition, or Coil On Plug. That means it does not have a distributor and plug wires like you are probably used to... each cylinder has its own ignition coil. If you can look at the injectors, you will see something about 1.5 inches around with a small bolt holding it in place, and a small wiring harness attached to it. These are the coils. The bolt has a 7 or 8 mm head on it. Remove the bolt and wire plug, and the coil will pull up and off of the spark plug. Depending on which cylinder you look at, it will be difficult to actually see the spark plug, but trust me it is down there about 4 inches deep into the head. They have a 5/8 head, and you will need about 1 3 inch extension for your ratchet to remove the plug. Be sure that your spark plug socket has the little rubber insert in there to. If you are going to replace them, a little tip for you.... lube the ceramic boot of the plug with dilectric grease before you insert it into the spark plug socket. This will keep the rubber piece from stickin to the plug after you install it. Also DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE PLUG !!!!! You will F!#$% up your head and the repair is VERY expensive to fix. You can actually rip the threads right out of the head if you over tighten them. It is a bit of a pain to get all of them, but not too bad. I would plan a good 3 or 4 hours the first time you do it. On the passenger side, the back two are tough, but if you take off the brackets where the battery wires connect to (4 - 8mm bolts) and slide the two harneses off of the brackets, you can do it. Just push the heater hoses out of the way
