Spark plug removal success

After a postponing the dreaded plug issue on my 05 GT with 83k miles, today I decided to remove the plugs. Thankfully I did not break one! Huge sigh of relief!

Soaked the plugs with sea foam deep creep for 2 hours. Then put the coil packs back on, let the car idle for 30 mins then started taking them out. It was a long process because I took my time slowly loosening them. But it was worth not breaking any.

It's better to do it sooner, before more carbon builds up. That's what causes the plug to break.

You guys are putting cooper ant-seize grease on the threads when putting the plugs back in, right?

Deep creep will work great! I was afraid too but patience paid off.

I did my spark plugs and they were the originals and I have 106k on mine and I didn't break a single one. I used deep creep too but waited 15 mins between and a spark plug ratchet piece and a torque wrench. Took me about 4 hrs to remove them did a quarter of a turn 5 times then just went for it spraying DC in it says only do it twice or it can cause problems. My fist time doing anything like this.
