    Coil packs, phasers, timing tensioner seals, oil pumps, etc. I don't know what the going rate for an on-site exorcist is, but check your local Craigslist.

    Sounds like youíve had some experience with them, lol. I canít say Iíve had any real bad experience with them other than the coil packs.

    Lol. I've never done it, but the coil packs are a pain in the ass from what I've seen on my 04 E350. I hear they're notorious for snapping off in the block.

    I've got over 400k on my 5.4 and the worst trouble it's given me was chasing an overheating problem. I'd think it would throw a code if it was misfiring. I know it did on my 03 Navigator with the 5.4.

    I use Sta-Bil fuel stabilizer in my boat every time i put fuel in it, since it may sit weeks-months before the next time I run the engines...I would think it would be the same for a vehicle...especially if you are putting in fuel with ethanol...

    This. My 2003 sits most of the time now. I swear I have changed all of them twice. I suspect the coil packs absorb moisture when they sit for a while.

    Since Iím going to be changing out the coil packs, I guess Iíll be changing out the spark plugs. Iíve never messed with spark plugs, so is there a better one than another?

    Go with OEM. They last 100k. Also make sure motor is cold when you do it so you don't damage the aluminum threads in the heads. And do not over-torque those the plugs. I would definitely put antiseize on the threads of the new spark plugs.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
