stripped spark plug holes
Hey guys and gals!
I bought my 97 4runner sr5 at 210k. within 5k, spark plug number 4 popped RIGHT not of the engine. SEVERAL colorful words and a 3 day weekend later, I got a helicoil in and was in business (was my first time ever doing anything like that, so it took me a while to feel comfortable enough to tap into my block.
Another 15k miles down the road, plug 1 popped out of its home and fried the ignition coil in the process. this time i paid a shop to do it (AutoStop in Chico, CA. Am fairly happy with their service).
Question is: have any of you dealt with this issue, heard of this issue before? From those I've talked to, this is a FORD issue, not toyota.
Thanks in advance.
