Def brine eats anything metal including plugs on a plow truck pecause in plowing the plow throws the slushy briny shit up the sides of the block and on the plugs.Now on a Ford triton engine it is a design flaw, they have a really long plug that gets carbon build up on threads that stick below the threaded portion of the head and into the combustion chamber.That add to the fact it is the thinnest plug (only a 9/16" head) you take them loose the carbon jams the threads and plugs break..Special tools are made for removal .

No I was told it was corrosion due to or caused by the Calcium chloride that is used to pretreat the roads locally, I didn't have the issue prior to the use started @ 5 years ago....<br /> it is very corrosive.<br /> the plug ends ( nut) were gone on 2 of them completely, they cut a grove into the stud at the base of the clock and used a screw driver to work it out he said

So regularly breaking plugs is acceptable? I was a State Inspection/Emissions mechanic back in the 70's-90's when I lived in Philly. Don't remember breaking that many plugs.

Is it a design problem? I will say this, my Sierra had a plug thread strip out at about 240K. Is it because of the Aluminium heads?

Toledo, My mechanic can, I usually Break things I touch when I work on any of my vehicles....<br /> It is cheaper for me to have most things done by them in the long run

If you break the base, you can always drill it out and heli-coil it but that's a pain in the ass.

The base is the part you worry about breaking and what gets costly.But yes he was fair on labor time.

Your tech treated you right only 3 hours for a tune with even one plug broken off then.When tuninghe triton engines on fors plugs break regularly and there are tools made to remove them.I havent looked but I imagine labor time for a full service on that truck would be 2.5 hrs anyway.
