The explosion was so great that it broke the coil pack in three pieces and when I pulled over in investigate the noise I turned on the engine with the hood open to see the spark coil across the port where the plug had been and it was sparking it's a wonder that it didn't catch the vapors on fire fron the cylinder the plug also severed one of the vaccuume hoses in the engine compartment.
I attempted to re-start the engine multiple times, each time with the same result - - the engine red-lined at maximum rpms. I checked rear view mirror and then pressed on brakes with the sound of the racing turbo charged engine filling the cab. I contacted the Ford dealership in town and the mechaninc told me that was normal for trucks over 100K miles, and that they would 'start popping out like popcorn'. After looking at the problem they sent me to a Ford dealer. If it temporally stops the squeak the pump is okay and you can replace the belt, idler and tensioner pulleys as needed.

The original manufacturers spark plug shot out of the engine. Sometimes dirty fuel injector will stay open and fuel pressure will continue to drain into motor after vehicle is off.

I started to research online and found hundreds of reports about the Ford F150's doing this exact same thing and the majority of the problems seem to come from the 3 plug. There is a potential that this could cause an engine fire! Entered traffic lane and began lightly braking for approaching signal. I cant believe that Ford hasn't had a recall on this problem.
Some rear main seals leak with oil flowing out where trans joins engine. I have had the truck serviced regularly and have had no major issues until today.

The spark plug issue has just bitten me, now I have a 10,000 dollar peice of steel in my driveway because I am not paying 5400 and some change to fix a problem that should be recalled, the plug gettting hit by the piston or shooting out of the hole can be very dangerous by allowing fuel to come in contact with hot engine or electrical spark therefore starting a fire, this problem has been an ongoing issue and yet nothing is done I think a recall should be placed for the issue. The coil pack was still putting out spark, but not to the plug, as the boot that held it on the plug was gone, it was just sparking against the sides of the recess in the head. Upon doing research online, this appears to have happened to hundreds of people once their Ford hits 100,000 miles.

You don't need step by step instructions, but it is quite the pain in the but to change the plugs. We got it limped back to the shop, and had to let it cool down overnight, so the mechanic could investigate the problem.
