CEL Issues

I have an 08 GT with the 4.6 motor with just over 49,000 miles on it. Last fall I decided to go and have the spark plugs broken free. I didn't want to get too many miles on it then try to change the plugs and they break off in the heads. I just cleaned them up and put aanti-seize on the threads and reinstalled them. Drove they car then I statred getting CEL. I put my scanner on it. The codes for cylinder 1 and 5 misfire kept popping up. Did several different things nothing worked. I put it in storage for the winter. I got it out the first of April. Haven't meesed with it too much til about 2-3 weeks ago. I bought SVE coil pack and installed them last night, cleared CEL. Drove to work this morning CEL came back on. Any advise on what I should look for or do next. Thanks in advance.

Did you change the plugs? Or just cleaned em up if you've already changed the coil packs I would replace the spark plugs

I talked to a mechanic at the Ford dealership. He looked up to see if there was a TSB on the issue. He then told me to change the plugs. He said that factory plugs, since they have that extension past the threads there is porclin in the middle of it and that I probably cracked it where I was breaking them free.

I would suspect the plugs to be the most likely issue, too. It can be very easy to damage them when uninstalling the factory plugs on a 3v. Pick up a new set and let us know how everything works out!

I ordered a set of plugs from you guys online, but I ordered the wrong ones. I'll order the right ones and get them installed ASAP. Then I'll let you know what happens

It's been awhile since I've posted on here about my CEL issues. Sorry about that. Different things had come up and wasn't able to get the new plugs til yesterday and got them installed. So far the CEL hasn't come back on. I'll keep you updated if it does.
