How To Do A Ford Triton V8 Tune Up (2V Engine)




What do you think about this video?

FordTechMakuloco: Left hand bank is always Bank 2 on Fords not Right hand FYI.

newstart49: A friend of mine has a 2002 f150 4.6 and asked me to help him get the plugs out. It seems he did this job once and torqued the plugs to about 45 ft lbs- so he says- and used anti-seize. Way over tightened! Now we put considerable force on the plugs but they wouldn't break loose and in fear of causing a plug to break or tear up the threads, we quit. Have any ideas on what to do? How much torque can you apply to remove one before something breaks? Ever hear of this? Thanks!

Benjamin Oviedo: I'm about to do one of these how much should I charge? This video was very helpful by the way! Thanks a lot!

blackericdenice: Just did a tune up on a 98 Expedition 5.4. Next time I will charge $125 and not $80.

teecuzbruh: I like the way you present this task you come across as an excellent instructor.

juan carlos sosa: Gracias porser este vídeo 

mark willis: thanks-easy instructions-I had 3 yrs auto shop 1969-1972 so its been awhile since I've checked out AUTO SHOP ha ha

Grover Burkett: The 3v engines have really difficult spark plug that sometimes break. The 2v spark plug should not normally break. I just wish they would use a little more thought on routing EGR tubes and such to not make removing the COP so hard.

Robert Faulconer: thank you

Jerry Herron: Great video, all pro. Thanks for the info

NothinMan: Best teaching video yet! Thank you sir.

STEVEN SLAGLE: That help me a lot thanks

Brent C: very informative thanks

7xrepiv: 5.4 are known to break sparks in the head. I seen allot of people use impact wrenches to pull the plugs. Whats ur take on that?

718mattmatt: I have both the 4.2 liter v6 in my f150 and I have the 5.4 liter in my 99 f250 idk why people say that the 5.4 is a bad motor I have 170xxx on it and not a single problem other than the valve cover gaskets leak a little the 4.2 is a great motor too I bought it off this guy that had the intake gasket problem fixed so I love ford and will always have them

Aaron Zimmerman: Great video very usefull 

Bill Moore: Super job. 

bill731990: i would suggest first quarter wash carefully cleaning all the dirt and junk away from the plugs and then praying each plug with penetrating oil letting sit over night and then replacing each coil boot there not much and like a wire can go bad over time only have to do it ever 100000 might as well spend the extra money around 6-10 a cylinder 

csamburgey1: I have a 2001 F250 5.4 and i'm getting a PO355 code. I changed plug and coil and made sure the coil is firing but it still runs terrible. I had it diagnosed at a shop and they are saying it has a burnt valve. It happened suddenly so I was surprised to hear burnt valve. I have another guy telling me to get a new PCM. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!

briansmobile1: As long as it hasn't been salted you'll most likely be fine.

Jason Bridschge: You have prob aleady answered this question but what is the deal with the plugs breaking in this motor? Is it preventable and where would a guy find the specialty tool if I do break one?

briansmobile1: Sage advice my friend- thanks for the wisdom!

Hardblackman: Any videos on tapping a oil drain plug

contenova: Brian i have a question I have a 1997 expediton 5.4 when i try to accellerate it will sputter badly unless i work the throttle...Seems like it boggs anyone else have this problem..I have replaced the fuel filter...Its fine when im on the flat but as sonn as there is a load it will sputter unless i feather the throtlle to stay in the sweet spot... meaning a 3000 rpm.Thx if you can reply cool if you cant no worries..

bazzline85: Hey Brian, my name is Mike and my truck is a 2000 5.4 Triton and I'm thinking of adding another 2.5 to 3" lift using a torsion key. I bought it used and its got some lift to it right now. I wanted to find out whether this is a stock lift and if it is am I still able to lift it using the torsion keys. I don't want to use any kits at this time. Thanks.

MrSeeker2013: PLEASE DO... also do you know anything about bi fuel (cng) trucks? Trying to do this right now

Brad Lindley: What a great video- thanks for this!

briansmobile1: Thanks

cooljoescott: Great video, you made it look real easy. Thank you.

Jessie Bourne: How hard is it to change the rest spark plugs? I read that a couple of them are kinda tricky in the back. I got a couple of estimates from mechanics, one told me it is a 3.5 hour job and another one told me it is 1.5 hours. And with being told 2 different things my husband and I are wanting to do them ourselves.

anthonylopez3232: On the 2003 model how do u get to the number 8 plug? The fuel rail is over the coil blocking it in

briansmobile1: I don't have a vid on that, but I know I've seen a few here on Youtube from the tool retailers.

ljw2896: Qeustion Ford dealer is charging me $329.00 plus tax to change spark plugs in my 2002 F250 is that about right as far as pricing goes thanks

Cpl. Chronic: I just changed the plugs on my truck: '01 F-250 4X with the 5.4. It's 12 yrs old with 86,000 on it. The bolts and plugs came out easy on mine. Thankfully. All I can say is, put some never seize on the threads when you put them back.

Richard Kicklighter: At what mileage, starting from zero would you recommend a tune up? The 99 F250 5.4 (approx 95K miles) drinks gas like a redneck at a free beer & BBQ wings buffet. Thanks!

briansmobile1: I'd pay the tech to do them if you're not sure.

onlinemartinez: Thank You! very informative. I have a 2000 e150 with 112k miles and I'm about to replace all the spark plugs and coils. your video will help a LOT.

briansmobile1: Soak it in PB Blaster over night and try again.

briansmobile1: They're pretty close.

briansmobile1: You're welcome Conrad!

tarek osman: great work

scottyray12: How do you reach the back coils that are so dradded?

briansmobile1: The first thing to do is double check your work. Did anything like a vacuum line break near the work you did? Were the parts correct? Were the parts installed correctly? Were any wire harness' rerouted near exhaust or moving parts? etc.

briansmobile1: I know it sounds stupid or sissy, but no one cares how much you know until they know how much you care about them. You really can't teach anyone anything unless they trust you. No one will trust you if they feel you don't like them. If you tell some one they're dumb, wrong, foolish, etc they will not like you. This will never help you or them. It isolates you from learning from each other due to pride.

briansmobile1: Welcome Dustin!

molybednum90: You really do not understand the physics here. The grease impedes the flow of electric energy. Reduction of electron flow reduces power. The fact that you have assembled something and it appears to work does not mean you have it right. The only difference is knowing the difference and you do not.

anarchyamp: Have oil in my spark plugs, how hard to do valve cover gaskets? Is it true that I need to do intake manifold gasket as well if i'm going to do valve cover gaskets?

Cpl. Chronic: Here's a challenge: Show the job on Cyl 4 or 10. lol It's possible to do it without removing the fuel rail. Awkward, but possible. I did have to use a flex extension to remove the coil pack bolt on cyl 9 and 10, but straight extensions on everything else.

Jim Wojdylak: I've spent hours searching videos on this topic. This is the best video I've seen. Wasn't sure how to remove the connector from the c.o. Thanks for showing where the clip is located.

Shrimps: Thanks man, I appreciate the feedback. The reason I was able to get sales is because I offer rare shrimps for sale. Not many other online place is willing to take the risk at shipping high priced shrimps. That is my way of earning online.
