I have a 2010 Transit Connect XLT, 2.0 gasoline engine with 112,000 miles on it. We got this van when we purchased our flower shop back in 12/17. The van came with the shop. It has been "maintained", meaning oil changes and brakes, maybe plugs... the basics. The other day the spark plug blew out of the cylinder head. I have no idea if these were orig plugs (I don't think so) so I don't know if maybe the plug was over tightened or if it pulled a Ford and did what the plugs in the V8 engines due quite often... blow out of the cylinder. Needless to say I'm a bit soured on Ford right now. Being a shade tree mechanic I knew I had a chance at re-cutting the threads and putting an insert in it. I'll spare the details but it didn't work. I took it to my mechanic and he is pulling the head off and taking it to a machine shop. They will see if they can repair or if we need to get a re-manufactured head. Has anyone else had this issue? Also are there other engine things I should be aware of? We replaced the idler pulley and belt and will be replacing the water pump too. We will also be putting Ford spark plugs in it and the coil over the blown plug needed to be replaced. I've heard the transmissions in these are not the greatest as well.
