It is a simple job if you have the special tool to remove broken spark plugs...a very, very common occurence on these engines.
Murphy's Laws of Probability guarantee you will have broken plugs if you don't have the tool. But, get the tool and you will likely have broken plugs anyway.
Ford has a few TSBs on this, but does not cover the expense of a broken plug. Take it to a Ford dealer for the tune up...they surely have the tool.

Thanks C9

Oh and you Virginny boyzz .....I actually told my wife I should just take some time off and go up to VA. I have a good friend that lives in Concord/Lynchburg area. He is an former Ford dealer mechanic and a HUGE Ford fan. Has a 73 GTS Torino.

Heck we can all get together...I can afford to travel there and back fix the truck, buy everybody Lunch and dinner for 650.00

Done several 5.4 3v. Get the tool. I think mine was made by Lisle or something similar to that name. Piece of cake with the tool. Cost about $100. Well worth it.

I did a decarb service to my F150 before i replaced the plugs. It's carbon build up that causes the plugs to get stuck and break. Replaced all 8 plugs and didnt break a single one. My truck had 95,000 miles on it when I changed plugs. Total investment (including tool, decarb service and plugs), $300.00 Big Grin

You can even rent the tool from stores like Autozone or Advance Auto. Then take it back when you are done.
