Dan's Triton motor update!
By dan1085 on
2006 Ford F-150 XLT 4dr SuperCab Styleside 8 ft. LB (5.4L 8cyl 4A)
Here's my update.
I'm the "Dan" guy who posts about 3rd Ford truck and still impressed.
I finally started to get a misfire.
Dealership said it didn't throw ONE SINGLE CODE (like all other keep posting about) no cam phasers, sensors, lifters etc.
Replaced all 8 plugs, and misfire is resolved as of yesterday.
NOT ONE BROKE!, only 56k, but still 6 years old.
I really think the 2 piece spark plug design is horrible and YES causing a lot of you financial hardship, however....change them at or before 60k.
I really think that any V-8 not changing plugs til 120k, like I keep reading will obviously give someone a lot of trouble removing.
Use Mobil-1 5w-20w, NOT the old fashioned sludge 10w-40
Looks, ride, room, power, reliability.
The model suggestions didn't give me the option to select 5.4L XLT 5.5ft bed, but thats what I have in the Supercab.
Poor AC, takes too long to cool.
The spark plug issue, and for god sake it's a 330ci engine with only 300HP??? come on now, oh well, I didn't buy it to race Cobra Mustangs, and GTO's.
