Does it matter which brand of plugs I get ?? Or do I stick with factory ?

Intake leak would suck in not blow out. I would say plug ejected/backed out.

Guess I should've asked lol but the slip he gave me said the plug was 4.98 and the COP was 48.99 so he probably went original equipment since the parts where so expensive but I'm not for sure

That's ballpark

Plugs take like an hour to do max. I did a write up on it awhile back. It is retarded easy. Torque is 12-15 ft lbs on a cold engine with anti seize. Gap is .054. I recommend autolite APP103 plugs.

You don't need new COPs either. The electronic portion rarely goes bad, it's the boot and spring that get dry and rusty. You can buy a COP rebuild kit for $30 for all 8 vs paying $300+ for a new set of Motorcrafts.

Thanks for all the good advice on that cause I defiantly need it haha I just don't wanna **** something up especially with all the horror stories I've read on plugs popping out, since mine just done it..

You also said I wouldn't need too change any of the COP's which I agree with how expensive they are ,but I did notice when I was in there lookin around that the previous owner has replaced one of them with a yellow accel plug which I hear aren't that good.. Question is do I replace that one with motorcraft or just leave it alone and will it hurt anything with that one being different than the rest??

The Accels are a downgrade from Motorcraft longevity wise but if they are all working just leave them. If they are older you can rebuild them for $30.

http://www.amazon.com/Denso-671-8110...ord+plug+boots

Just pull the boot off, pull the spring out, new spring pops in, new boot slides on, put a dab of dielectric grease in the tip and G2G. Rebuilt 120k original mile COPs in my Expy and still going strong.

Another good trick is to go to a JY and find a low mileage Vic/Marquis/Towncar and just yank the OEM COPs and get them cheap. Hell, I paid $575 delivered for a whole replacement motor in May. It has 39k miles and came with the original COPs which would be $350 new lol. So I now have a bunch of spares for my Stang and Expy.
