Motorcraft Platnum - 4.6L Spark plug change, 2005 F150

2 1/2 hours from start to finish, couple of busted knuckles and several prayers later...Out with the old in with the new. New versus old plug in the photo. Original plug on right had 127K miles on them.

Only if it runs rough or misses after you change the plugs.
