Spark Plug Maintenance and Replacement

At least one time or another we have all been guilty of trusting our hands-on “feel” for bringing spark plugs to a “close enough for Government work” torque. However, this can be a costly mistake when that torque is under---and worst of all---over torqued, leading to much more trouble than checking a manual for the proper torque values in the first place before beginning.

However, as it turns out, there’s more to it than that according to a recent Ford Tech Makuloco YouTube channel video where the host explains that the 2022 models of the Ford F-150 EcoBoost engine have changed their spark plug type used. Not only do you have to be sure to not use those extra stored plugs from an earlier model F-150, but you also need to pay attention to their new torque values.

That said, here is a very thorough step-by-step demo video that is a nice refresher course on proper spark plug replacement to make sure your DIY automotive skills are up to date and ensuring your F-150 remains running like the great truck it is.
